Rays reach one-year deals with four players
The Rays have reached one-year deals with four of their remaining arbitration-eligible players, the team announced Friday, in advance of the deadline to make a deal before the two sides would have to enter arbitration.
Outfielders Sam Fuld and Matt Joyce, and pitcher Jeff Niemann and infielder Ryan Roberts all agreed to one-year deals.
Fuld will earn $725,000, Joyce will earn $2.45 million, Niemann will earn $3 million and Roberts will earn $2.95 million, plus incentives, according to a release from the team.
The Rays earlier in the offseason reached deals with Cy Young winner David Price and utility infielder Sean Rodriguez.
