Baseball's long winter is finally coming to an end. Today, pitchers and catchers will report to camp, concluding the four month offseason in the return of our national pastime.
As expected, the financially-limited Rays didn't make too much noise this winter. Coming into the offseason, there were a lot of questions regarding the multiple holes on the roster. The Rays knew they had to address the open spots at DH, first base, and catcher.
Fortunately, the front office was able to fill in the holes during the winter, in efforts to bring back another successful season to Tampa Bay. Although the Rays did not make a huge splash in MLB's Hot Stove frenzy, they have a pretty good amount of new additions joining the club this spring.
Here's an evaluation of every single Rays offseason move.
