The Tampa Bay Rays signed RHP Winston Abreu to a minor league contract. He will report to Triple-A Durham Friday.I really liked Abreu when he was here April, May, and early June. He had some terrific numbers for us, leaving here with a 1.41 ERA. Not sure what happened in Tampa or Cleveland, but happy to have him back.
Abreu was designated for assignment on Aug 1 by the Indians, who had acquired him from the Rays earlier this season.
Just remembered that the Rays traded Abreu to Cleveland for John Meloan, which makes it even more weird. Gotta wonder what they're going to talk about out there in the bullpen.
