ST. PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays completed their first trade of the offseason Saturday, sending reliever Burke Badenhop to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for minor league outfield prospect Raul Mondesi Jr.

The 20-year-old Mondesi Jr., who played right field and center field, spent the 2012 season with Rookie-level Helena of the Pioneer League. He hit .231 (63-for-273) with five home runs, 32 RBI, 12 doubles, six triples and eight stolen bases in 68 games.

Mondesi Jr., is the son of former big league outfielder Raul Mondesi, the 1994 National League Rookie of the Year and a two-time Gold Glove-winning outfielder.

Badenhop, acquired Dec. 12, 2011 in a trade with the Miami Marlins, made a career-high 66 appearances with the Rays last season. He was 3-2 with a career-best 3.03 ERA. He had a 2.24 ERA after May 1.
