Rays to Sign Dirk Hayhurst

According to Rob Neyer (H/T friend of the site Jason Collette) the Rays are signing Dirk Hayhurst, otherwise known as The Garfoose on Twitter and for his best-selling book, The Bullpen Gospels.

Hayhurst missed last season due to injury, but prior to that racked up some big league experience with the San Diego Padres and Toronto Blue Jays. His big league numbers are mediocre, albeit in a small sample size, but his minor league peripherals are strong. Hayhurst’s stuff is not going to overwhelm anyone. He’s a bit like his college teammate Andy Sonnanstine in the sense that he mixes pitches and throws strikes with below average velocity (although he does throw harder than Sonnanstine).

He should be a fun individual to root for regardless of how the season unfolds.
