Minor Moves: Gonzalez, Ortiz

Matt Edy with Baseball America reports the following transactions made by the Rays during the week of March 1 to March 8.

  • Signed RHP Edgar Gonzalez
  • Released RHP Ramon Ortiz

Gonzalez was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2000. He spent his career at various levels in the Diamondbacks, Athletics and Dodger organization. He spent seven years at the major league level and his last assignment was Triple-A Albuquerque in 2010.

Also former RHP Tyree Hayes has been signed by the Cincinnati Reds organization.


  1. Found Out where Ryan Royster is. He signed with the New Jersey Jackals of the Can-Am League

  2. Yep, I sent out 8 tweets yesterday on Ex Rays news. Maybe I should have just made one big post, but I didn't know I would find 8 when I started! I'll try to keep everyone posted on the former Rays as the season goes on, either as posts or tweets.
