Tampa Bay Rays: Nick Hundley

Record: 56–53, .514

Standings: 3rd in AL East (3.5 games behind) in AL East, 1/2 game behind in wild-card

Playoff Odds: 36.3%

With both Jesus Sucre (77 OPS+) and Wilson Ramos (58 OPS+, albeit in just 81 PA) both competent behind the plate but underperforming at it, it makes sense for Tampa Bay to find a catcher with some offensive utility. Hundley lacks as a pitch framer (-4.3 runs according to Baseball Prospectus), and his 52/6 strikeout-to-walk ratio is dreadful, but he can run into one; he has five homers and a 90 OPS+ in 178 PA (.262/.284/.446).
