Rays add SPC product RHP Jeff Walters on minor-league deal
On a thus-so-far quiet reporting day in Port Charlotte, the Rays added to their camp roster by signing RHP Jeff Walters, a product of St. Pete College, on a minor-league deal.
Walters, 29, is an Orlando native who has spent his whole career in the Mets organization, reaching AAA in 2014 and 2016. He was drafted five times before signing with the Mets in 2010, including in 2007 out of SPC by Washington in the 47th round and in 2008 out of SPC by Cleveland in the 30th.
Walters was 4-3, 5.89 over 56 games for Triple-A Las Vegas last year.
