Joey Wendle traded to Marlins

The Rays were involved in trade talks with multiple players throughout the day. With Corey Kluber needing a roster spot, a move was made.

Just hours before the MLB non-tender deadline, the Tampa Bay Rays traded 2021 All-Star infielder Joey Wendle to the Miami Marlins for outfield prospect Kameron Misner.

The Wendle trade is the latest in a series of moves the Marlins have made to improve their team, after signing Avisaíl García and acquiring Jacob Stallings from the Pirates.

Wendle arrives fresh off his first All-Star Game selection and joins an infield with multiple veterans including former teammate Jesús Aguilar.

The move helps solve a potential logjam in the infield for the Rays. This frees time for young talented players Taylor Walls and Vidal Bruján, along with Yandy Díaz, who will have more time at third base.

Outfielder Kameron Misner goes to a very talented Rays farm in the deal. The former Missouri Tiger was the 35th overall selection in the 2019 draft and slashed .253/.355/.433 in A+/AA last season.
