The Rays are re-signing right-handed reliever Chaz Roe to a one-year, $1.15 million major-league deal.
Roe, 34, pitched in only 10 games last season due to right-elbow soreness that landed him on the injured list in late August and ended his season with a 2-1, 2.89 record. He is said to be healthy now.
Roe joined the Rays in July 2017. In 151 games over parts of four seasons, he is 4-6, 3.54 with three saves, his sharply breaking slider typically holding down right-handed hitters.
The deal for Roe, pending completion of his physical exam, is expected to be announced Monday, as is a one-year, $1.8 million deal with free agent right-hander Collin McHugh.
The Rays can create space on the 40-man roster by shifting Yonny Chirinos and Oliver Drake to the 60-day injured list.
