Desmond Jennings - does his value go up with trade of Kazmir?

Kazmir's trade was largely a salary dump by the Rays, who decided they couldn't afford the last two years of his contract with his shaky performance and huge injury risk.  With Kazmir gone, does that increase or decrease the odds they trade Carl Crawford this off-season rather than pick up a $10-million-plus option? On the one hand, the Kazmir trade made signal the Rays will be in full salary-dump mode and will trade Crawford with Jennings taking his place next year. On the other hand, by trading Kazmir the Rays may feel they can afford Crawford next year, and if Crawford stays, Jennings has a much harder path to making a big impact next year.

I have Jennings on my reserve and hope the first scenario will play out. What do you think happens?
