ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays have exercised a club option on outfielder David DeJesus for next season.
The 33-year-old started 26 games after being obtained in a trade from the Washington Nationals on Aug. 23, helping Tampa Bay earn an AL wild-card berth. He will earn $6.5 million in 2014.
A .279 career hitter, DeJesus batted .251 with eight homers and 38 RBIs in 122 games with the Rays, Nationals and Chicago Cubs last season.
The decision Sunday came a day after the Rays exercised 2014 options on second baseman Ben Zobrist and shortstop Yunel Escobar. The team has until Monday night to make a decision on a $2 million option on pitcher Juan Oviedo.
