Rays listening on Nathan Karns?

The right-hander has had a breakout season (3.37 ERA in 20 starts), and Tampa Bay reportedly could be looking to sell high. Trading a reliever like Kevin Jepsen may be more likely, though. MLB rumors roundup

Casali strikes twice... again

If Curt Casali's 2-homer night on Tuesday looked familiar, that's because it happened Monday too. Casali became the fourth player since 1900 with two homers in back-to-back nights in his first 50 MLB games. Kahrl: Tuesday's Top 5

Tampa Bay's trade goals still hazy

With a GM as quiet at Matt Silverman, it's hard to say what the Rays will do. They've listened to offers for Brad Boxberger and Jake McGee, and it's possible they'll want to upgrade their lineup in exchange. Updated deadline preview (Insider)
