The Rays have their latest reclamation project, as ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the club has signed reliever Mark Lowe to a minor league contract. The deal includes an invitation to spring training.

Lowe, 30, posted a 9.26 ERA over 11 appearances with the Angels this season before he was given his release his June. He latched on with the Nationals from there, but pitched exclusively with Triple-A Syracuse before he opted out of his contract after being passed over for a September call-up.

Lowe compiled a 3.60 ERA over 177 appearances between the Mariners and Rangers from 2009-2012, so there’s rebound potential here. The Rays have earned the benefit of the doubt at this point, so it would probably be more surprising if he didn’t end up being a contributor in 2014.
