The Rangers have finalized a $750,000, one-year contract with Khalil Greene to be a utility infielder.
To make room of their 40-man roster, the Rangers designed
outfielder Greg Golson for assignment Thursday.
Texas was looking for a utility infielder who could play
shortstop after the departure of free agent Omar Vizquel, who
signed with the Chicago White Sox. Greene has played 678 games at
shortstop in his career, and his only 16 games at third base came
last season with St. Louis.
Greene hit .200 with six homers in 77 games for the Cardinals
last season. Before that, he was the starting shortstop for San
Diego from 20-08.
