The 36 year-old was sidelined for the first two months of 2012, and lost his closing job to Fernando Rodney. Farnsworth had been in contact with multiple teams and had received multiple offers, including the Milwaukee Brewers, Seattle Mariners, Toronto Blue Jays, Detroit Tigers and New York Mets, although it was reported that he had giving considerable thought to rejoining the Rays. Farnsworth owns a home in the Orlando area and has spent the last two seasons in Tampa Bay.

Fanrsworth’s best season was 2011 when he pitched in In 57 2/3 innings and  had a 2.18 ERA and a 3.16 FIP, with 25 saves. Farnsworth will likely set up for Rodney in 2013. The Rays will need to make a corresponding move to add Farnsworth to the 40 man roster before finalizing the deal.
