After I wrote a post for the Rays to sign Doug Waechter back on a minor league deal, I see this on The Heater:
Former Ray and pride of St. Petersburg RHP Doug Waechter is going to sign a one-year deal with the Royals, and should have a good shot for steady work in their bullpen. Waechter spent much of last season with the Marlins, going 4-2, 3.69 in 48 games.
I guess Waechter's performance last year earned him a major league contract and the Rays are in no need to sign any more middle relief at this time. He does deserve a chance to play in the big leagues and I wish him the best of luck.
