Rays trade Burke Badenhop for Raul Mondesi Jr.

The Tampa Bay Rays traded RHP Burke Badenhop to the Milwaukee Brewers for minor league outfielder Raul Mondesi Jr.

Mondesi, 20, played this season with rookie-level Helena of the Pioneer League in rightfield and centerfield. In 68 games played, he hit .231 with five home runs, 32 RBI, 12 doubles, six triples and eight stolen bases. The right-handed hitter signed with the Brewers on June 23, 2010 out of the Dominican Republic. His father, Raul Mondesi, hit 271 home runs over 13 major league seasons from 1993 to 2005.

Badenhop, 29, a reliever, played one season for the Rays, his first full year in the majors.

He was 3-2 with a 3.03 ERA and made 66 appearances. The Rays acquired him from the Miami Marlins on Dec. 12, 2011 in exchange for minor league catcher Jake Jefferies.
