The Rays interest in free-agent C Jason Castro came to an end as the price soared, with Castro agreeing on Tuesday to a three-year deal with the Twins for a reported $24.5-million.

The Times reported on Friday that the Rays had made an initial offer and per agent Fred Wray were "right in the thick of things" to land the former Astros starter.

But with the Twins, Braves and several other teams interested, the price quickly escalted for Castros, who is known as a top pitch-framer but was inconsistent at the plate, hitting .210 last year and .215 over the past three seasons with a .660 OPS.
