ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays have released reliever Dan Jennings, a move that enables them to avoid paying most of his $2,375,000 salary in a non-guaranteed contract.

The 30-year-old left-hander, who receives $574,597 termination pay instead of his full salary, went 3-1 with a 3.45 ERA in 77 games for the Rays and Chicago White Sox last season. He is 12-13 with a 2.90 ERA in 310 career big league appearances over six seasons with three teams.

With young pitchers Yonny Chirinos, Andrew Kittredge and Ryan Yarbrough expected to make the team as multiple-inning relievers, Jennings was released Monday, a day after being told he wasn’t going to make the opening day roster.
