Report: Rays have asked Rangers about Hunter Pence

The Tampa Bay Rays are determined to find affordable trade deadline help as they try to keep pace in the AL wild card race.

According to Jon Morosi of, the Rays have asked the Texas Rangers about the availability of DH Hunter Pence, who is enjoying a resurgent season in Arlington.

Pence is hitting .290 with 15 home runs in a surprising comeback year that saw him make the American League All-Star team. The 36-year-old recently returned to action after missing about a month with a groin problem. He’s on a one-year deal, so if Texas opted to move him, the price would likely not be prohibitive. That perfectly suits the Rays’ approach to “responsibly” adding at the deadline.
