Rays Re-Sign Thompson To minor League Deal

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have re-signed outfielder Rich Thompson to a minor league contract.

The team also announced Thursday that five other players — infielder Mike Fontenot, right-handed pitchers Matt Buschmann and Will Inman, first baseman Nick Weglarz and infielder Shawn O’Malley — also agreed to minor league deals that include invitations to major league spring training.

The 33-year-old Thompson appeared in 23 games — 12 as a pinch runner — with the Rays after being acquired from the Philadelphia last May.
