REPORT: Tampa Bay Rays Are Interested in Jorge Posada

Everyone knows that Posada isn’t coming back to the Yankees, but that doesn’t mean that Posada is done playing. According to ESPNDeportes.com & NBCSports, it is reported that the Tampa Bay Rays are interested in inking a contract with the 40 year-old veteran who has played 15 years with the Yankees.

Posada has also had discussions with teams such as the Baltimore Orioles & the Philadelphia Phillies according to his father.
