Eveland cleared waivers and accepted an outright to Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Eveland passed through his waiver period unclaimed by another big league club and will now head to Triple-A Durham, where he had been the past several weeks. The 32-year-old has struggled with command in the majors this season, allowing 15 walks in 20 innings, contributing to his unsightly 8.55 ERA and 2.10 WHIP with the Rays this season.
Eveland was designated for assignment Wednesday, 620 WDAE's Steve Carney reports. The Rays needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Dylan Floro, whose contract was selected from Triple-A on Wednesday, and Eveland was the victim. Eveland had a 8.55 ERA and walked 15 batters in 20 innings prior to getting designated for assignment.
Eveland's contract was selected by the Rays on Tuesday. Closer Alex Colome landed on the disabled list with biceps tendinitis on Tuesday, so the Rays brought Eveland back to add another arm in the bullpen. Xavier Cedeno and Erasmo Ramirez will likely get the save opportunities while Colome is on the shelf, which negates Eveland's value in shallower formats. Eveland notched a 7.56 ERA in 21 appearances with the Rays earlier in the season.
Eveland cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Eveland was DFA'd by the Rays last week after continued struggles on the mound. Through 16.2 big league innings, Eveland has allowed 13 walks while accumulating an ugly 7.56 ERA. The left-hander will look to get things turned around at Triple-A, a level at which he found great success in 2015, splitting time between the Red Sox, Orioles and Braves organizations.
Eveland was designated for assignment Wednesday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports. Eveland surrendered a pair of runs in his last outing, as his ERA ballooned up to 7.56 to go along with 13 walks in 16.2 innings on the season. If he passes through waivers, the Rays will likely look to get the southpaw going once again at the Triple-A level. Outfielder Jaff Decker was promoted to the big leagues in a corresponding move.
