Reliever Al Reyes declined his outright assignment to Durham and is now a free agent.

Reyes, 38, was designated on Aug. 9 when the Rays acquired reliever Chad Bradford. Reyes had missed 55 games this season while spending two stints on the disabled list. In 26 games this season, Reyes boasted a 4.37 ERA.

Reyes made a huge impact with the Rays last season, making the club as a non-roster invitee and saving 26 games in 30 chances.

Reyes is the second Rays reliever to decline an outright assignment this season; RHP Gary Glover did so on Aug. 1 and has since joined the Tigers.
