Deal to sign Loney now official



The Rays have made official the deal they struck earlier this week to sign 1B James Loney, who gets a $2-million salary with the chance for another $1-million in incentives.

“James is a guy that’s been on our radar for years,'' Rays executive VP Andrew Friedman said. "We feel like there is real significant upside from surface line last year. He’s a tremendous defender and a guy that we feel fits in really well to our club.”
