News: Frieri has made three appearances so far this spring, surrendering one hit and three walks while collecting a couple of strikeouts over three scoreless innings.
Impact: After racking up 60 saves across 2012 and 2013, Frieri struggled mightily while pitching for both the Angels and Pirates last season. The Rays' brought the once-dominant righty to Tampa Bay on a one-year, $800,000 contract back in November with hopes that he could rebound under the guidance of pitching coach Jim Hickey. Though Frieri's control has left a bit to be desired, the results have been mostly promising to this point. The 29-year-old hurler seems likely to head into the regular season in a middle-relief role for the Rays.
