Rays Sign Zack Burdi To Minor-League Deal
The Tampa Bay Rays signed free-agent right-handers Zack Burdi, Ben Heller and Heath Hembree to minor-league deals on Wednesday that include invites to major-league spring training. Burdi was once an intriguing relief prospect in the Chicago White Sox's organization, but injuries have held him back the last several years. The 27-year-old has only thrown 17 1/3 innings in the majors and has allowed 18 runs (15 earned). Heller, 31, hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2020, although he has a 2.59 ERA (5.57 FIP) and 1.34 WHIP in 31 1/3 innings over four seasons with the Yankees. Hembree, 34, has by far the most experience of the trio (354 2/3 career relief innings) over 10 major-league seasons. He has a 4.39 career ERA (4.67 FIP), 1.39 WHIP, 11 saves and 25.4% strikeout rate in 357 relief appearances.Jan 18 · Source via Rays Zack Burdi Ben Heller Heath Hembree closers
