On February 1, the Rays signed left handed pitcher Brian Anderson to a minor league contract invited him to Spring Training. Every spring it is fun to look over the invitations to big league camp and catch some of the names. Guys like Anderson are what make it fun.
Anderson has had some success in the big leagues but was just never able to stay healthy. He is a low risk/high reward signing. If he can be anywhere near the pitcher he was in 2003 when he won 14 games he will be well worth it for the Rays. A big league can never have to many affective left handed pitchers. He could also be a nice bridge until the Rays are ready to play all of their young pitchers.
Keep an eye on him this spring to see how he performs.
