Rays Showing Interest in Tony Watson

Sources tell FOX Sports Ken Rosenthal that Tony Watson is among the relievers that the Tampa Bay Rays are interested in acquiring. 

Watson came into this season as the Pirates closer, but ineffectiveness removed him from the role. Since being taken out of the closer role, Watson has performed better, posting a 2.38 ERA in 18 appearances. The increase in velocity has certainly played a factor as to why he’s pitching more effectively now. There’s not much doubt Watson will be dealt, since he’ll be a free agent after this season.
