Rays sign reliever Kyle Farnsworth to new deal


Kyle Farnsworth and the Tampa Bay Rays have reached a one-year agreement for 2013. Farnsworth, 36, will have a base salary near $1.5 million and can earn more in performance incentives.

Farnsworth missed the start of last season while dealing with an elbow injury. He was activated in late July.

Last season Farnsworth had a 4.00 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP in 27 innings of work. He has pitched the previous two seasons for Tampa Bay.

Farnsworth should assume a role in late inning relief setting up Fernando Rodney.
