Rays claim LHP Cesar Cabral off waivers from Jays



After a two days in limbo, LHP Cesar Cabral is back with the Rays.


The Rays claimed Cabral off waivers Monday from the Blue Jays, who had claimed him from Tampa Bay on Saturday.

The Rays had been intrigued with Cabral, 22, who made a nice impression since getting acquired in this past offseason's Rule 5 Draft from Boston. But they knew it'd be tough to fulfill the requirements of Rule 5 draft acquisitions, that the player would have to be on their roster all year, which is why they exposed him to waivers over the weekend.
