PORT CHARLOTTE The Rays signed free agent DH Jack Cust to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training.
Cust is expected to join the team today.
A left-handed hitter, Cust last played in the majors in 2011 with the Seattle Mariners.
He does have some power, hitting 26, 33 and 25 homers during a three-year stretch between 2007 and 2009 while with Oakland.
