The Tampa Bay Rays have acquired Adeiny Hechavarria from the Miami Marlins in exchange for two minor leaguers.
The Rays say he's a "Gold Glove-caliber" defender who's also capable of making them better offensively.
Tampa Bay will most likely make room for Hechavarria at shortstop by shifting Tim Beckham from the position to play second base.
"We certainly feel we have as good a chance as anybody," senior vice president of baseball operations Chaim Bloom said, adding that Hechavarria is a "talented player who's going to help us win."
Braxton Lee and pitcher Ethan Clark will go to Miami in the deal.
