Rays agree to minor league contracts with Dillon, Shealy

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Infielder Joe Dillon and first baseman Ryan Shealy have agreed to minor league contracts with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Dillon hit .300 with one homer and two RBIs in 15 games as a designated hitter, third baseman and second baseman for the Rays last season.

Shealy has played parts of four seasons in the majors with Colorado and Kansas City. He was with Triple-A Omaha in 2009, but missed most of the season because of a knee injury.
