Tampa Bay Rays News: Randy Arozarena Off to Hot Start

The Tampa Bay Rays traded highly-touted, left-handed pitching prospect Matthew Liberatore to the Cardinals for Jose Martinez and Randy Arozarena. The move was lauded as a win-now move for the budget-restricted Rays, who are notorious for always keeping an eye on the future.

Arozarena has displayed every tool at the minor league level and had a promising run with the Cardinals last season, which included his great all-around game against the Diamondbacks on September 25, 2019. He threw Adam Jones out on a laser beam to third base, stole two bases, and hit a home run to left field.
