Devil Rays Sign Six Players
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) _ The Tampa Bay Devil Rays agreed to one-year contracts Monday with six young players on their 40-man player roster.
Left-handers Todd Belitz and Jim Morris, right-handers Chris Reitsma and Jeff Sparks, infielder Jared Sandberg and outfielder Alex Sanchez all signed.
Tampa Bay also lost infielder David Lamb to the New York Mets on a waiver claimed.
Lamb was designated for assignment Jan. 28 when the Devil Rays added right-hander Steve Trachsel to their roster. Lamb hit .226 in 55 games with the Devil Rays last season.
