The Los Angeles Angels may or may not trade Shohei Ohtani before the Aug. 1 trade deadline. They are bound to get calls from interested teams, however, and one franchise might be a surprise player.

The Tampa Bay Rays are expected to at least call the Angels about Ohtani, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. The Rays are a threat to acquire Ohtani because they have the organizational talent that might be necessary to swing such a deal.
