The Rays signed RHP Grant Balfour to a 2-year $12 million deal.
The Orioles loss is the Rays gain. Balfour brings a strong arm and success to the pen in Tampa Bay.. Balfour has the skills to be one of the better closers in baseball, but he lacks the long term success in the role and the big name of so many others. Use that to your advantage and don't be afraid to roster Balfour at a lower cost than his efforts suggest should be spent.
