Tampa Bay Rays relief pitcher Joel Peralta
St. Petersburg, FL-- The Tampa Bay Rays have signed relief pitcher Joel Peralta to a 2-year contract.
And it's worth 6 million dollars. That's pretty good money for a 37 year old set up man.
But Peralta is that good... He has owned the 8th inning... And he's made more appearances the past 2 seasons... 147... Than anyone else in the American League...
Plus, the Rays have options on Peralta through 2017.
And since Fernando Rodney is signed for next season, the Rays may have the best closing bullpen duo in baseball.
