Blue Jays deal oft-traveled RHP Drake to Rays


The Tampa Bay Rays have acquired oft-traveled relief pitcher Oliver Drake from the Toronto Blue Jays for $70,000, the Blue Jays announced Friday.

Toronto designated Drake for assignment to open a 40-man roster spot after dealing for left-hander Clayton Richard from the San Diego Padres last Sunday.

It marks the second time the right-hander Drake, who turns 32 this month, has been acquired by the Rays this offseason. He was originally claimed off waivers by Tampa Bay from Minnesota on Nov. 1, only to see the Rays designate him for assignment later in the month -- with the Blue Jays claiming him on Nov. 26.

Drake's three teams this offseason continues his recent career path, as he pitched for five teams in the 2018 season: Milwaukee, Cleveland, Toronto, the Los Angeles Angels and Minnesota.

Overall in 2018, Drake pitched in 44 games in going 1-1 with a 5.29 ERA, with 51 strikeouts in 47 2/3 innings. Drake, who pitched most of his first three big league seasons in Baltimore, is 5-6 with a 4.59 ERA in 135 career appearances.
