The Rays will place Enns on waivers Wednesday with the aim of granting him his unconditional release to pursue playing opportunities in Asia, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Enns will have to clear waivers before he's officially granted his release Friday, but the expectation is that he'll go unclaimed since he seemingly already has an agreement in place with a team in Korea, Japan or Taiwan. The 30-year-old lefty likely would have been worthy of a 40-man roster spot with the Rays or another organization after submitting a 2.82 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 25:6 K:BB across 22.1 innings with Tampa Bay this past season, but since he's not arbitration eligible until 2024 and not scheduled to hit free agency until 2027, Enns will be able to secure a more lucrative deal by heading overseas for his prime earnings years.
