Rays pick up Reyes' option, decline option on Norton
Reyes was a non-roster invite to spring training after missing most of 2006 while recovering from elbow surgery. He began 2007 with 16 consecutive saves and finished with 26 in 30 chances, the fifth-highest total in club history.
Norton, 35, batted .243 with four homers and 23 RBIs in 75 games last season. He receives a $50,000 buyout.
