Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that the Rays have agreed to terms with right-hander Joel Peralta on a one-year, $900,000 deal.
After back-to-back rough years Peralta had to earn his way back to the majors with a dominant stint at Triple-A as a 34-year-old and then pitched brilliantly for the Nationals with a 2.02 ERA, .170 opponents’ average, and 49/9 K/BB ratio in 49 innings.
That somehow got him non-tendered earlier this month and he’s unlikely to be as good as he was in 2010 again, but his excellent control and 4.22 career ERA should fit well in the middle innings for the Rays’ overhauled bullpen and the price is right.
