The Philadelphia Phillies acquired pitcher Michael Mercado from the Tampa Bay Rays for pitcher Adam Leverett and cash considerations.

What does it give the Philadelphia Phillies
Mercado is a young reliever who could find his way to Philadelphia before the end of 2024 (or sooner). He is a nice addition here.

What does it give the Tampa Bay Rays
Leverett can both start and relieve, which is perfect for the Rays organization. The Rays were also able to get some cash in this transaction.

Fantasy impact
There is no fantasy impact here, although Mercado has some long-range fantasy upside.
