Jeff Bennett, who made 11 appearances for the Rays last year, has been released by the club. Bennett made three starts with Durham this year including Tuesday in which he walked 7 in 4.2 innings.

Bennett was originally designated for assignment and removed from the 40-man roster when the Rays acquired Kelly Shoppach. Bennett cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to triple-A.

    Seriously though, good riddance. This is one guy who personifies how thoroughly crappy 2009 was. He will most certainly not be missed.

      I think "Good riddance" is a bit harsh, but I have to admit that I was thinking something similar about him being on the team last year.
