Jose Martinez traded to Rays

The Rays and Cardinals completed a deal on Thursday that sends 1B/OF/DH José Martínez, outfielder Randy Arozarena and a Competitive Balance Round A Draft pick to Tampa Bay for left-handed pitching prospect Matthew Liberatore.

Fantasy Impact

Martínez will make most of his appearances as the team’s designated hitter, which is a more natural fit than playing the outfield or first base. He’ll split time with Ji-Man Choi, Austin Meadows and Yandy Díaz, who all saw time at DH in 2019. Over his career, Martínez has a .976 OPS against left-handers, including a .997 clip in 2019 despite seeing a dip in overall performance. In a division that is loaded with left-handed pitching, adding a bat like Martínez was a priority for the Rays this offseason.
