Difelice coming back



An original Ray will get the chance to rejoin the team.
Catcher Mike Difelice, 38, has agreed to terms on a minor-league contract and will come to spring training to compete for a job.
"I know where they're trying to get to,'' Difelice said Sunday. "I wanted to be part of it and I still want to be.''
Difelice spent most of the last four seasons at the Triple-A level, playing only 59 major-league games. The Rays have three young catchers on their roster - Dioner Navarro, Shawn Riggans and John Jaso - and could use the veteran presence and experience Difelice would bring.
