Rays' Kyle Roller: Signs minor league contract with Rays
Roller signed a minor league contract with the Rays, Marc Tompkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Roller spent the last two seasons with the Yankees Triple-A affiliate. The 27-year-old swatted 14 home runs and drove in 59 RBI last season, helping him post a .729 OPS. He'll likely serve as organizational depth with plenty of other options ahead of him at first base in Tampa Bay.
