The Rays have re-signed starting pitcher Erik Bedard to a minor league deal according to several members of the media.
Bedard had hoped to find a Major League job with another club. Instead, he will report to the triple-A Durham Bulls where he will be part of their rotation.
The Rays also brought back infielder Mike Fontenot who was released by the Nationals earlier in the day.
Fontenot last appeared in the majors with the Phillies in 2012, playing 47 games and spent the 2013 season with the Durham Bulls.
