The Rays have signed Coleman and placed him at Triple-A Durham, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 29-year-old right-handed relief pitcher had spent most of 2016 pitching in Tacoma for the Mariners organization. During that stretch, Coleman racked up a 2.08 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 39 innings. He also accumulated four saves for the Rainiers during that stretch. The Rays will likely call on Coleman to pitch in the majors at some point in 2016. He owns a 5.72 ERA in 177.2 career MLB innings with the Cubs and Royals.
