      Rangers' Bobby Wilson: Will become free agent

      Wilson will elect to become a free agent after refusing his outright assignment, Executive Vice President of Communications for the Rangers John Blake reports. Wilson appeared in 56 games for the Rays and Rangers in 2015, but the 32-year-old back-up catcher wasn't able to do much at the plate, recording a .189/.255/.250 slash line in 132 at-bats. He's never been known for his offense, but he should receive some interest in free agency from teams looking for a veteran backstop.
