Rays bid adieu to Waechter

The Devil Rays wished pitcher Doug Waechter a happy holiday season today ... and released him.

Waechter had passed through waivers and Tampa Bay excised him from its 40-man roster, then axed him from its payroll completely. Waechter struggled last year with the Rays, went to the minors and was horrid at Class AAA Durham: 1-12, 8.32 ERA in 17 games. He was also hurt and wouldn't have pitched -- at best -- until midseason next year.
