ST. PETERSBURG - Add RHP Casey Sadler to the pitchers with big-league experience invited to spring training with the Rays.

Over the three seasons, he has pitched in nine big-league games with a 1-1, 6.86 mark.

He spent most of 2018 with Triple-A Indianapolis, posting a 6-5, 3.39 mark in 27 games, making eight starts.

Sadler was a 25th round pick in 2010 out of Western Oklahoma State.
