was brought in for a workout yesterday in Arlington. He must have played catch in the tunnels below the stadium and hit in the indoor cages, because we had an ice storm and the high was about 27 degrees. Yes, here in Texas. Anyway, he also had dinner with GM Jon Daniels and owner Tom Hicks. Seems like they are talking a minor league contract with a spring invite to camp. His last full season was in 2005, with the Orioles, batting .221 with 14 HR’s in 102 games.
The Rangers have invited 4 more players to camp. Pitchers, Thomas Diamond and Eric Hurley. Catcher, Kevin Richardson and First Baseman Nate Gold.
Pitcher Joaquin Benoit signed a 1-yr, 1.05 mil contract.
