Right-handed reliever Miceli signs with Devil Rays
Miceli was 1-2 with a 5.89 ERA in 19 appearances with Colorado last season. The 35-year-old right-hander has appeared in 598 major league games with nine clubs, posting a 42-50 record with 35 saves and a 4.51 ERA.
He will make $650,000 in each of the next two seasons. The deal also has a $1 million team option for 2008 that could escalate to $1.45 million. He would receive a $200,000 buyout if the team declines.
To make room for Miceli, the Devil Rays designated right-hander Franklin Nunez for assignment. Nunez made 13 relief appearances with Tampa Bay over the past two seasons.
