Rays bring back reliever Kevin Jepsen



UPDATE, 4:46: Jepsen could be in the bullpen as soon as Friday.

DEVELOPING: The Rays have re-signed RHP Kevin Jepsen, who was released last week by the Twins.

Jepsen was a key part of the Rays 2015 bullpen, then dealt to Minnesota at the trade deadline.

The Twins designated him for assignment after he got off to a tough start, posting 1 2.6.16 record with seven saves.

Jepsen, 31, is making $5.3-million, with the Twins responsible for all but the pro-rated share of the major-league minimum.

It is not clear how soon Jepsen will join the Rays; he last pitched in a game July 2.
