Rays signed LHP Justin Marks to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Marks has appeared in just one major league game, pitching for the Royals in 2014. Otherwise, the 28-year-old left-hander's a career minor leaguer. He spent the entirety of the 2015 campaign with the Diamondbacks' Triple-A Reno outfit and held an uninspiring 5.63 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 84/50 K/BB ratio across 108 2/3 innings (28 games, 19 starts). There's little in his numbers to suggest that he's primed for any sort of legitimate major league work in 2016. Jan 13 - 5:24 PM
