Rays And Wesley Wright To Part Ways
Wesley Wright To Be Non-Tendered By Rays
The Rays have until midnight this evening to tender a contract to their arbitration eligible players. The arbitration eligible Rays and their expected 2014 salary (provided by MLBTraderumors) are David Price ($13.1M), Matt Joyce ($3.7M), Jeremy Hellickson ($3.3M), Wesley Wright ($1.4M), Sean Rodriguez ($1.3M), Jake McGee ($1.2M), Jose Lobaton ($1M), Cesar Ramos ($700K), and Sam Fuld ($900K).
Earlier tonight we found out that the Rays were not going to tender a contract to Sam Fuld and now according to Roger Mooney of TBO.com (Twitter) the Rays will part ways with left-handed reliever Wesley Wright.
Wright was acquired (for cash) from the Houston Astros on by the Rays on August 12th. The soon to be 29 year old Wright appeared in 16 games for the Rays logging 12.1 innings allowing just 4R/ER on 9 hits (2 home runs) striking out 15 while walking only 3.
