      Rangers' Pedro Ciriaco: Signs minor league deal with Rangers

      Ciriaco signed a minor league deal with the Rangers on Wednesday. The contract includes a spring training invite. The veteran spent last season with the Braves organization, seeing time in 84 major league contests while appearing in 26 minor league games. Ciriaco hit .261 with 15 RBI and eight doubles for the Braves while playing all over the infield, in addition to making a couple of appearances in the outfield. The 30-year-old will look to make the roster outright in spring training, but he could end up at Triple-A.

      Braves' Pedro Ciriaco: Non-tendered by Braves

      Ciriaco was non-tendered by the Braves on Thursday. The Braves cleared a spot on the 40-man roster and avoid having to negotiate an arbitration deal with the utility infielder. Ciriaco is a career .268/.294/.368 hitter, and he played every infield position other than catcher last season, so his versatility is his main selling point as he now becomes a free agent.

      SS Pedro Ciriaco homers, drives in four in Braves' loss

      The Braves got a boost from the bottom of the order as shortstop Pedro Ciriaco drove in four runs from the No. 9 hole, but it wasn't enough in a 9-6 loss to the Rays. The normally light-hitting Ciriaco drove in two runs with a second-inning single and then connected for his first home run of the season in the fifth. His seventh inning sacrifice fly put Atlanta ahead 5-3, though the Braves would squander that advantage. Ciriaco's big night gives him 15 RBIs on the season.

      Braves' Pedro Ciriaco reassigned to Triple-A

      Braves infielder Pedro Ciriaco was in line to win the final spot on the major-league bench this season, but after the team acquired Cameron Maybin on Sunday, manager Fredi Gonzalez had to tell Ciriaco that he wouldn't be on the Opening Day roster, the Atlanta Journal-Consitution reports. "You guys see it at the top level with (Craig) Kimbrel, but you didn't see it with Ciriaco. That was tough," Gonzalez said. "Here's a guy on Saturday, you bring him into the office and he's scared to death, because he doesn't know what's going to happen. And I say, congratulations, you made the team, barring anything crazy. And he starts crying. He had expected to be sent down. I tell him he had a hell of a spring and all the reasons we're going to go with him, and he starts crying and he goes, 'It's the first time I've made an Opening Day roster.' Well, (expletive), 12 hours later he's not on the Opening Day roster, and you've got to have that conversation. I mean, it's tough sometimes." Ciriaco, who was reassigned to Triple-A Gwinett in the wake of the Kimbrel-Maybin trade, hit .373/.387/.492 in 59 spring at-bats.
