ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -The Tampa Bay Devil Rays released reliever Shinji Mori on Monday.
An All-Star in Japan, Mori agreed to a $1.4 million, two-year contract with Tampa Bay in January 2006 but never threw a pitch for the Devil Rays. Two months later, he tore the labrum in his right shoulder during his spring training debut in a minor league game.
The 32-year-old right-hander was a five-time All-Star with the Seibu Lions of the Pacific League in Japan.
