The Tampa Bay Rays filled the open position on the 40-man Major League roster Tuesday, signing reliever Chris Devenski to a one-year deal with a club option for 2025.  The deal was first reported by Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

Devenski was signed by the Rays on August 29 after being released by the Los Angeles Angels, and went 3-2 with a 2.08 earned run average in nine regular season appearances with Tampa Bay.  He also threw two scoreless innings in Game 1 of the Wild Card series against Texas.

According to Topkin’s report, Devenski will get $1 million in 2024, not including incentive bonuses and pay escalators, and his 2025 club option would be worth $2 million if picked up or he would get $100,000 if bought out.
