Since trading Delmon Young to the Twins, the Rays have been looking for a left-handed bat who can play DH and right field. Floyd, 35, has a .279 career average with 222 home runs in 15 Major League seasons with the Expos, Marlins, Red Sox, Mets and Cubs. He hit .284 with nine home runs for the Cubs in 2007.
Because Floyd has a history of injuries, the report says an agreement with the Rays won't happen until he passes a physical. But that is not expected to prevent a deal from being struck.
