Rays, Peralta reach agreement

Posted on: December 16, 2010 11:12 am

The Rays, seeking to rebuild their stripped bullpen, are set to add former National Joel Peralta for $900,000, according to's Buster Olney.

Peralta was brought up by Washington in late June and put up great numbers, including a 2.02 ERA in 39 appearances with nine strikeouts and 1.7 walks per nine innings. But the Nationals non-tendered the 35-year-old, making him a free agent.

This looks like a nice signing for the Rays, an undervalued player they can afford.
