Rays invite Venters to camp after 3rd Tommy John surgery

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Relief pitcher Jonny Venters has been invited to big league spring training by the Tampa Bay Bays while trying to come back from his third Tommy John surgery.

The 32-year-old lefty hasn't pitched in the majors since the 2012 NL wild-card card game for Atlanta. He had elbow ligament replacement operations with Dr. James Andrews in 2005 and 2013 and with Dr. Neal ElAttrache in 2014.

Venters spent last season in the minors for Tampa Bay, pitching at four levels and reaching Triple-A. He had a 2.28 ERA in 24 games.
