The Rays have assigned righty Oliver Drake for task, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times writes about Twitter. His list spot will go to outfielder Avisail Garcia, whose previously revealed signing is currently official.
It’s not frightfully astonishing to see Drake again dropped from a 40-man list, as it appears his destiny to finish up in DFA limbo at any rate once every few months. Notwithstanding his numerous earlier treks into that netherworld, Drake has thrice traveled through limbo this offseason alone. This isn’t even the first occasion when he has been cast away by the Tampa Bay organization since the 2018 season attracted to a nearby.
Regardless of whether the 32-year-old will clear waivers or again end up moving stays to be seen, yet the brilliant cash might be on a deal. Quite a few teams clearly still observe the potential in his right arm, given that he showed up with an eye-popping five MLB groups a year ago and has since kept on bounce around the waiver wire. As we have clarified on a significant number earlier events, Drake has since quite a while ago created interesting peripherals. While that hasn’t often prompted proportional outcomes, he finished on a solid run a year ago with the Twins.
