This Date in Rays History

On this date in 2014, the Tampa Bay Rays released left-handed pitcher Eric Bedard.

The move came towards the end of spring training to allow Bedard an opportunity to find a big league gig elsewhere in the league, however, just a few days later, the Rays would sign Bedard to a minor league deal.

Bedard started the season with Triple-A Durham, he made one appearance and then the Rays selected his contact to bring him up to the big leagues. Bedard would remain in the Majors with the Rays until the end of July when he would be designated for assignment, ultimately making the last appearance of his big league career on July 12th.

Bedard pitched in 17 games — 15 starts — for Tampa Bay, registering a 4.76 ERA / 4.39 FIP over 75 23 innings pitched.
