Rays sign Kyle Farnsworth, Luke Scott

The Tampa Bay Rays reinforced their bullpen Thursday, reaching an agreement to re-sign free-agent right-hander Kyle Farnsworth, according to a major-league source.

Farnsworth, 36, will receive a guarantee of between $1.25 million and $1.5 million plus incentives, the source said. The deal is pending a physical.

The Rays know Farnsworth well – he pitched for them the past two seasons. He had a terrific year in 2011, posting a 2.18 ERA in 57 2/3 innings, but was sidelined for two months last season by a right elbow strain.

It also appears they have re-signed OF/DH Luke Scott as well although proper documentation has not been provided.

"Rays sign #########, #########."
"Former Ray ######### arrested again."
"Former Ray ######### opts for jail over rehab."
"Former Ray ######### busted for DUI, is named ALCS MVP"
"Former Ray ######### retires."

I just assume we will sign AJ Pierogi at some point.

And why weren't they in on Brett Myers?
