ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Infielder Will Rhymes, outfielder Jesus Feliciano and pitchers Romulo Sanchez and Matt Torra have signed minor league contracts with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Rhymes was Detroit’s opening day second baseman in 2011, when he split the season between the Tigers and Triple-A Toledo. He batted .235 in 29 major league games last year.

Feliciano batted .268 with 39 RBI for Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Buffalo in the New York Mets organization in 2011.

Sanchez and Torra are right-handed pitchers. Sanchez spent last season with the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles of the Japan Pacific League. Torra re-signed with Tampa Bay after going 5-1 with a 3.67 ERA in 11 starts for Triple-A Durham in 2011.

The Rays announced the signings on Thursday.
