PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) - Reliever Ryan Webb agreed to a $1 million, one-year contract with Tampa Bay, a move the Rays hope bolsters their bullpen.

The 30-year-old right-hander was 1-0 with a 3.20 ERA in 50 2-3 innings over 40 games for the Cleveland Indians last season. He can earn an additional $500,000 in performance bonuses based on games: $100,000 each for 30 and each additional 10 through 70.

Webb also has pitched for the San Diego Padres (2009-10), Florida and Miami Marlins (2011-13) and Baltimore Orioles (2014) in seven major league seasons. He is 17-18 with a 3.35 ERA in 357 appearances.

To open a roster spot Thursday, the Rays placed right-hander Chase Whitley on the 60-day disabled list. He is recovering from Tommy John surgery in May.’
