The infielder agreed to a minor league deal with the Rays in February. He hit .227 with four RBIs this spring.

Rays manager Joe Maddon said he appreciated Ensberg's efforts, but Tampa didn't have a place for him with the Triple-A club.

Ensberg, and All-Star with Houston in 2005, appeared in 28 games for the New York Yankees last season, batting .203 with one homer and four RBIs. He spent parts of the previous six seasons with the Astros and San Diego Padres, and is a career .263 hitter with 110 home runs.
