Rays add OF Jake Goebbert off waivers



OF Jake Goebbert was claimed on waivers from the Pirates, added to the Rays 40-man roster and optioned to Triple-A Durham.

Goebbert, 28, has played only 51 games in the majors, all with San Diego in 2014. He was a 2009 draft pick by Houston.

Goebbert is a lefty hitter and thrower who can also play first base.

Though their 40-man roster is now full, the Rays can move RHP Alex Cobb to the 60-day DL if the need to add a player.
