It's expected the Rays will make a formal transaction to add Hunter, who was attending camp as a non-roster invitee, to the 40-man roster later in the week. The hard-throwing right-hander has bounced around the league over the past few seasons, with his propensity for surrendering long balls proving to be his biggest hurdle. However, he was able to avoid back-breaking homers for the most part in 2016 during stints with the Indians and Orioles, and carried over that success to spring training, where he's allowed only one homer in eight innings while holding opposing batters to a .265 average. He'll likely serve in a middle-relief role for the Rays to begin the season.
