Ryan Carpenter Signs

The Rays have reportedly signed LHP Ryan Carpenter, their 7th round pick out of Gonzaga University:
The Firebirds bid farewell to left-handed pitcher Ryan Carpenter, who signed on Wednesday with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Carpenter was 3-2 in five starts for the Orleans Firebirds of the Cape Cod League this summer. He had a 2.77 ERA over 26.0 innings with 25 strikeouts and six walks. In his last outing on July 16th he went six innings, allowed one unearned run on two hits and a walk, and struck out five.

The Rays have now signed 34 of their 60 picks from the June draft.


  1. About time, now they need to get Garvin,Mahtook, and Torrez to sign to get all the college guys down.
