Iwamura Deal Opens Clears Spot for Zobrist
Cody Crosby,

The Tampa Bay Rays dealt second baseman Akinori Iwamura to the Pittsburgh Pirates for RP Jesse Chavez.

The Rays were looking to deal Iwamura in the offseason after Ben Zobrist's spectacular season. The second base job will be Zobrist's to lose in 2010.

Iwamura should only be on your roster if you are stuck with an injured second baseman during the season.

Zobrist will be the starter at second for Tampa after his 91 runs, 27 HRs, 91 RBI, 17 steals, and .297 AVG in 2009.
