MrAndMrsFish Posted July 11, 2005 Share Posted July 11, 2005 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.
