FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE TRADE FALLOUT: HANK CONGER TO GET SHOT WITH RAYS BEHIND DISH

In what most would see as a minor move, the Tampa Bay Rays picked up catcher Hank Conger from the Houston Astros on Wednesday for cash considerations.  When you are traded for just cash, then that clearly says something about your value or worth around the league.  The fact of the matter is that Conger has been nothing but a major disappointment since coming up with the Los Angeles Angels with some hype centering around his bat.  Unfortunately for Conger and those who took early chances on the guy, he always wound up falling flat on his face due to downright hideous defense and through holes in his swing that made hitting .240 a challenge.  Well Conger showed some signs in 2015 with the Astros when he hit 11 home runs in limited time in the lineup and it was enough for the Rays to take a chance as they always seem to do with player's no one else wants.  Conger has a chance to be the regular catcher for the Rays this season and no doubt we have seen numerous cases in that locale of guys who began to unleash some numbers there when they couldn't anywhere else.  Those in two catcher formats are the only ones who need to be concerned about this right now but at the very least Conger should be monitored early on to see if he can reprise the power he showed last season.
