Here’s a look at the latest outright assignments..
- The Rays outrighted Ernesto Frieri to Triple-A Durham, according to the MLB.com transactions page. Frieri signed a one-year, $800K deal to join the Rays this winter but was designated for assignment last week. The 29-year-old worked to a 4.63 ERA over 23 1/3 innings for Tampa Bay, striking out 7.3 and walking 4.2 batters per nine.
- The Braves sent left-handed reliever Donnie Veal outright to their Triple-A affiliate, according to the transactions page. Veal, 30, was also designated for assignment by the Braves back on May 5 and accepted an outright assignment to remain with the club. The former second-round draft pick (Cubs, 2005) has appeared in five games with the Braves this year and allowed runs in each of them — seven total in just 4 1/3 innings. He has a career 5.48 ERA in the Majors, but he has a track record of success in the minors.
