One of Tampa Bay’s key components out of the bullpen will be returning for two years. Reliever Joel Peralta has agreed to re-sign with the Rays on Tuesday.
The two- year deal is for $6 million with options through 2017.
“He has been an integral part of our late-inning success and has proven that he can get big outs in the American League East,” said executive VP Andrew Friedman.
Peralta finished 2012 with an ERA of 3.63, highest in the two years he has had in a Rays uniform. He held opponents batting average to .200 in 76 appearances.
