ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -Pitchers Brian Anderson and Scott Munter and catcher Josh Paul agreed Friday to minor league contracts with the Tampa Bay Rays.
Anderson, a 35-year-old left-hander who last pitched for Kansas City in 2005, has been recovering the past two seasons from ligament-replacement surgery on his left elbow. He has a career record of 82-83 with a 4.74 ERA in 13 seasons with the California Angels, Cleveland Indians, Arizona Diamondbacks and Royals.
Munter, 27, made 12 relief appearances for San Francisco last September, going 1-1 with a 4.22 ERA after spending the entire minor league season in the bullpen at Triple-A Fresno.
Paul, 32, played 35 games for the Rays last season, batting .190 with one homer and nine RBIs. He sat out more than two months after straining his left elbow on a home plate collision with Florida's Miguel Olivo.
All three players were invited to spring training.
