4

December

The Rays joined the growing trend in the majors by adding an extra coach to their staff, promoting Jamie Nelson from the minor-league staff.

Nelson will assist hitting coach Derek Shelton and also work with the catchers under the title major-league coach. He will not be in uniform for games.

Nelson had been the minor-league catching coordinator.

Also, INF Sean Rodriguez agreed to a one-year deal for $1-million to avoid arbitration.
