Rays Sign Logan Kensing

The Rays signed righty Logan Kensing to a minor league deal, reports Joe Smith of the St. Petersburg Times.  Kensing was designated for assignment twice during the '09 season, by the Marlins and Nationals.  He re-signed on a minor league deal with Washington in December, but was released in March.

Kensing, 27, posted an 8.92 ERA, 4.8 K/9, and 4.3 BB/9 in 35.3 innings for the Nats and Marlins last year but was impressive in 33.3 minor league frames.  Five years ago, Baseball America praised Kensing's makeup and described his repertoire as "a 91-94 mph fastball, solid-average slider, and developing changeup."  Last year as a reliever, he averaged 93.4 mph on his fastball.

Just minor league depth here. Move along. Nothing more to see. Don’t be seduced by the AAA numbers. He’ll break your MLB heart. My god ws he bad for us last year.
