Grant Balfour eager to work his way back into Rays' bullpen

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/5/15) Veteran reliever Grant Balfour has joined Triple-A Durham in hopes of climbing his way back to the Rays, according to MLB.com.

"He was eager to join Durham to get back into shape," general manager Matt Silverman said. "For Grant, this is an opportunity for him to have a true Spring Training. He'll be able to build up his arm properly. He'll be able to pitch on a schedule. We hope he'll regain the form that he's had in the past and he'll be back to helping us win ballgames at the Major League level."

Balfour was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay on April 18 and released by the club last week before signing a minor-league deal with the Rays. The 37-year-old registered a 4.91 ERA over 62 1/3 innings in 2014.

"I think he had something to prove," Silverman said. "And he wants to help this organization win. He's loyal to the Rays and knows that we'll give him every opportunity to get back. I think he also knows that he needs some time to build himself back up.

"He could go back into the Majors right now. But he wouldn't be pitching on the same schedule and he wouldn't have the opportunity to build himself back up. There's a lot of season left. And if he can get himself back into shape, he can help this club for many months."

Grant Balfour back with the Rays on a minor-league deal

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/2/15) Veteran reliever Grant Balfour, who was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay on April 18 and released by the club earlier this week, signed a minor-league deal with the Rays on Friday, per the Tampa Tribune.

The 37-year-old lost his spot with the club this season after allowing three earned runs over 4 1/3 innings. He posted a 4.91 ERA over 62 1/3 innings in 2014.

"Hopefully I can get back up with (the Rays)," Balfour said in a text to the Tribune.

Report: Maddon, Cubs interested in reliever Grant Balfour

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/30/15) Joe Maddon knows all about veteran reliever Grant Balfour, having managed him at Tampa Bay before taking an identical job with theCubs. And Maddon is well-aware that Balfour is seeking employment.

The Rays released him this week and will be responsible for what's left of his $7 million salary in 2015.

Balfour, who played a key role on the 2008 Tampa Bay team that rocketed to the World Series, is being targeted by the Cubs, according to CSNChicago.com. The 37 year old lost his spot with the Rays this season after a terrible 2014 and having given up three runs in 4 1/3 innings this season.

Rays release struggling reliever Grant Balfour

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/28/15) Grant Balfour has cleared release waivers and is a free agent, according to MLB.com. The veteran right-hander was designated for assignment by the Rays on Saturday after allowing three earned runs over 4 1/3 innings of relief.

The 37-year-old Balfour owns a 3.49 ERA over 12 seasons in the majors.

Rays DFA reliever Balfour after Saturday pounding

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/15) The Rays have seen enough of faltering reliever Grant Balfour. After he surrendered a grand slam Saturday night to Chris Young, he was designated for assignment, per the Tampa Tribune.

The 37-year-old Balfour has been struggling since last season, when he arrived in Tampa as the closer and quickly lost the job. He had pitched 3 2/3 shutout innings this season before walking three and giving up the blast to Young on Saturday.
