The Tampa Bay Rays announced Thursday that they have agreed to deals with eight of their ten arbitration-eligible players: right-handed pitchers Shawn Armstrong, Aaron Civale, Zack Littell and Drew Rasmussen, left-handers Shane McClanahan and Colin Poche, outfielder Randy Arozarena and infielder Isaac Paredes.

McClanahan reportedly received a two-year deal from Tampa Bay, according to Robert Murray of Fansided, while the other seven players are believed to have gotten one-year deals.

Reliever Jason Adam and DH Harold Ramirez were unable to come to terms with the team, and will go to arbitration.
