Borowski signs....


Recommended Posts

Former Chicago Cubs reliever Joe Borowski agreed to a contract Monday with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and will join the last-place team after the All-Star break.


The 34-year-old saved 33 games for the Cubs in 2003,

helping them make the playoffs. He appeared in 11 games this

season and was 0-0 with a 6.55 ERA before being designated

for assignment when the Cubs activated Kerry Wood on June 29.


Borowski posted a 2.63 ERA in 68 games in 2003, but has

been hampered by injuries the past two seasons.


He was 2-4 with nine saves and an 8.02 ERA in 22 games

last year, when he spent time on the disabled list with a

right shoulder strain.


The right-hander appeared to be doing well in spring

training this year, but was hit by a line drive and opened

the season on the DL with a broken bone in his wrist.


Overall, Borowski is 13-18 with 44 saves and a 3.91 ERA in

parts of nine seasons with the Cubs, Baltimore Orioles,

Atlanta Braves and New York Yankees.


He will join the Devil Rays (28-61) on Thursday, when the

team begins a series at Toronto. The club will have to make a

move to open a roster spot.
