We've traded C Wilson Ramos to Philadelphia in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations.
Ramos was the Rays team leader in RBI with 53 and sported a .297 batting average before going down with a hamstring injury.
Ramos will be a free agent this offseason, as he finishes up the two-year, $12.5 million deal he signed before the 2017 season.
The Rays have only said they are getting a player to be named later or cash in exchange for the catcher.
With the 4:00 deadline quickly approaching, there is no word on whether or not Chris Archer will be with the team come Wednesday.
