Rangers' Jake Diekman: Agrees to deal to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jake Diekman agreed to a one-year, $1.255 million contract with the Texas Rangers on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Diekman struggled in his time with the Phillies before a change of scenery occurred midseason when both he and Cole Hamels were sent to Arlington and the Rangers. A strong finish to the season (2.08 ERA, 0.93 WHIP) earned him some decent pay in his first year of arbitration. While the 29-year-old southpaw should remain one of the better left-handed options out of the Rangers' bullpen, he likely won't see many (if any) save opportunities, and a 3.60 FIP certainly leaves reason to temper any expectations.

Rangers' Steve Johnson: Signs minor league contract with Rangers on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steve Johnson signed a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

Johnson was designated for assignment on December 2 by the Orioles after Mark Trumbo was acquired, and the Rangers became the team to ultimately pounce on the right-hander. The 25-year-old primarily pitched with Triple-A Norfolk last season, posting a 2.30 ERA and 11.1 K/9 in 54.2 innings with the Tides, but also had two rough appearances with Baltimore. Johnson will compete for a spot in the Rangers bullpen during spring training if he can get major league hitters out consistently.

Rangers' Nick Tepesch: Signs minor league contract with Rangers on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Tepesch signed a minor league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training, John Blake of the Texas Rangers reports.

Tepesch was non-tendered earlier this offseason after sitting out all of 2015 with an elbow issue. Tepesch's most recent bout in the majors was in 2014 with Texas, where he posted a 5-11 record with a 4.36 ERA in 22 starts. He'll likely compete for the fifth spot in the Rangers rotation in spring training if he is healthy, although the position may be a short-term opening with Yu Darvish expected to return to the rotation in May.

Rangers' Jurickson Profar: Could get a look in the outfield
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Profar (shoulder) will likely start the season playing shortstop at Triple-A Round Rock, but the Rangers might eventually consider him as an option for the big-league outfield, the Dallas Morning News reports.

It doesn't sound like the Rangers have any immediate plans to move Profar to the outfield, but he could get some reps this spring to increase his versatility. If the Texas infield remains healthy while the outfield suffers some injuries, Profar might then get a chance to try out a new position in meaningful games. He slashed .267/.352/.453 in the Arizona Fall League, but he was strictly used as a designated hitter, and the Rangers still have Elvis Andrus and Rougned Odor blocking him from playing time in the middle infield. The most recent report on Profar's shoulder said that he's been throwing from 135 feet.
