The Rays signed Ryan Shealy to a minor league deal and invited him to Spring Training, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The 30-year-old first baseman has a .271/.335/.429 line in 591 career plate appearances with the Rockies and Royals. Shealy, who didn't play at all last year, is a right-handed hitter, but hits oddly well against righties (.843 career OPS).
The Rays also signed Joe Dillon, according to MLB.com's Bill Chastain. The Rays acquired the 34-year-old for Adam Kennedy this year, and used him in 15 games.
