ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Left-handed pitchers Justin Marks and Adam Wilk have agreed to minor league contracts with the Tampa Bay Rays.

The team said Tuesday that both players also received invitations to major league spring training.

Marks spent last season with Triple-A Reno. The 28-year-old has spent part of seven minor league seasons with four other big league organizations, making his major league debut with a two-inning relief appearance for the Kansas City Royals in April 2014.

Wilk is 0-3 with a 6.49 ERA in nine career big league appearances, including three starts, for the Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels.
