Rays Pick Up Options of Zobrist & Peralta

Over the past few days the Rays made several moves that were more procedural than actual decisions. On Friday, the club exercised its $7.5 million option on Ben Zobrist. The infielder slash outfielder is set to play his 10th season with Tampa Bay assuming the club is not enticed by a trade offer this winter.

On Monday, the Rays reinstated Matt Moore and Jerry Sands from the 60-Day disabled list. Sands was subsequently designated for assignment. To make room for Moore, Vince Belnome was also designated. The organization also picked up the $2.5 million option on reliever Joel Peralta. Despite an uptick in ERA, the veteran continues to post above-average strikeout rates and cut down on walks. The 40-man roster is currently full.
