ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have re-signed right-handed reliever Joel Peralta to a one-year contract, avoiding arbitration.

Peralta went 3-4 with a 2.93 ERA in 71 appearances last season, helping the Rays make the playoffs. The 35-year-old also had a career-high six saves, four of them in September while filling in for injured closer Kyle Farnsworth.

Over parts of seven major league seasons, Peralta also has pitched for the Los Angeles Angels, Kansas City Royals, Colorado Rockies and Washington Nationals.
