Zach Eflin Signs With The Tampa Bay Rays

Written by Tony Ghaul

Former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Zach Eflin has agreed to a three-year, $40M deal with the Tampa Bay Rays, per Jeff Passan.

Eflin was acquired by the Phillies in a December 2014 trade that sent Jimmy Rollins to the Los Angeles Dodgers. He has had some impressive stretches as a starting pitcher, but knee injuries have prevented him from ever starting more than 28 games in a season. Over the last three seasons, Eflin has pitched to a 4.08 ERA over 240 1/3 innings.
