The Tampa Bay Rays, who have lost several players in free agency this offseason, finally added a new player to their changing roster.
The Rays agreed to terms with right-handed reliever Joel Peralta on a one-year deal worth $950,000.
The 34-year-old Peralta was 1-0 with a 2.02 ERA in 49 innings for Washington last season. He was non-tendered by the Nationals earlier this month.
The Rays' bullpen will have a much different look in 2011.
J.P. Howell, who was also non-tendered, reportedly agreed to a one-year deal to return to the team earlier this week.
