Rangers' Josh Sale: Receives chance with Rangers
Sale signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
A first-round pick by the Rays in 2010, Sale was suspended numerous times in the minors and has been out of affiliated baseball since 2014. He made a return via independent ball in the Atlantic League last season and hit .284/.394/.593 with 34 homers, 22 doubles and 104 RBI in 120 games, and he'll now make another attempt at cracking the big leagues. The 30-year-old was drafted as an outfielder but has since transitioned to third base.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Tropeano: Links up with Rangers
Tropeano agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday.
Tropeano appeared in five big-league games in 2021 between the Mets and Giants but spent most of the year at Triple-A, where he had a 3.69 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 51:24 K:BB over 46.1 innings. The right-hander will likely provide organization depth for the rotation in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Anthony Gutierrez: Joining Rangers organization
Gutierrez joined the Rangers on Sunday after agreeing to a $2.0 million signing bonus, reports SI.com's Chris Halicke.
Gutierrez is an excellent haul in a good class for the Rangers, being ranked as MLB Pipeline's No. 6 prospect. The outfielder is one of the most talented players in the class and while he's likely to move away from center field in his pro career, the bat has plenty of power potential and Gutierrez shows signs of being a plus runner as well....

Rangers' Jose De Jesus: Signs with Texas
De Jesus joined Texas on Sunday after agreeing to a $1.2 million signing bonus, reports SI.com's Chris Halicke.
De Jesus was ranked as the 27th prospect in the class by MLB Pipeline. The outfielder is a switch-hitting athlete featuring sound swings from both sides of the plate and emerging power.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Meibrys Viloria: Latches on with Texas
Viloria signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday.
He most recently hit .233/.367/.384 with five home runs in 54 games at Triple-A last season as a member of the Royals organization. Viloria will likely spend most of this season at Triple-A providing organizational catching depth.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jesus Tinoco: Signs with Rangers
Tinoco signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday.
He has a 4.89 ERA in 46 innings of relief in the majors over the past three seasons. Tinoco will likely provide bullpen depth at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' David Garcia: Back with Texas
Garcia signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old switch hitting catcher hit .256/298/.349 with five home runs in 83 games at High-A last season. He will serve as organizational catching depth going forward and is unlikely to play in the majors anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Yohel Pozo: Back with Rangers
Pozo signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday.
Pozo played 17 games at designated hitter and two at catcher while hitting .284/.312/.378 with one home run in 77 MLB plate appearances last season. He hit .337/.352/.622 with 23 home runs in 77 games as a 24-year-old at Triple-A, but his lack of defensive utility may limit his opportunities going forward.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' DJ Peters: Loses spot on 40-man roster
Peters cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.
Peters showed some pop for Texas with 12 homers in 52 games, but it wasn't enough for him to maintain his spot on the 40-man roster through the offseason. Kole Calhoun inked a deal with the Rangers over the weekend, which figures to make it more difficult for Peters to have a chance of making the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Corey Seager: Signs huge deal with Rangers
Seager agreed to a 10-year, $325 million deal with the Rangers on Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The signing completes a $500 million renovation of the Rangers' middle infield, as the team gave $175 million to second baseman Marcus Semien on Sunday. Injuries are just about the only concern for Seager, who hit .306/.381/.545 with 31 homers in 147 games across the last two years. His combination of quantity and quality of contact is a rare one. Among players with at least 400 plate appearances last season, only Juan Soto, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Manny Machado could match both his 16.1 percent strikeout rate and his 12.4 percent barrel rate. That suggests he should still be able to be a productive player over the back half of his deal when he eventually moves off of shortstop, something which should still be a few years away for the 27-year-old....

Rangers' Jon Gray: Headed to Rangers
Gray signed a four-year, $56 million contract with the Rangers on Sunday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Gray didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Rockies earlier in the offseason, so the Rangers won't be forced to give up a draft pick after signing the right-hander. The 30-year-old made 29 starts for Colorado during the 2021 campaign and logged a 4.59 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 149 innings. Gray will no longer have to pitch his home games in the altitude at Coors Field after spending his first seven major-league seasons in Colorado, and he'll have a prominent role in the Rangers' rotation in 2022....

Rangers' Kole Calhoun: Lands deal with Rangers
Calhoun signed a contract with the Rangers on Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Calhoun's $9 million team option was declined by the Diamondbacks in early November after he slashed .235/.297/.373 with five homers, 17 runs and 17 RBI across 51 appearances last year. Although he dealt with hamstring issues in 2021, he'll likely be in the mix for a starting role in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Marcus Semien: Lands with Texas
Semien is signing a seven-year, $175 million contract with the Rangers, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
In Semien's one year with Toronto, the 31-year-old hit 45 home runs with 102 RBI and 15 stolen bases. Over the past three seasons, including his poor 2020 campaign, Semien has averaged 37 home runs and 93 RBI per 162 games while slashing .268/.346/.509. The 2021 Gold Glove winner is a good defender at second base and shortstop and joins a team lacking a strong option at either position.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Zach Reks: Sent to Rangers
Reks and Billy McKinney were sent from the Dodgers to the Rangers on Monday in exchange for cash considerations.
Reks made his major-league debut at age-27 last season, going 0-for-10 with seven strikeouts in very limited action. He performed much better in 87 games for Triple-A Oklahoma City, hitting .280/.382/.539 with 19 homers, but a strong minor-league season from a player in his late twenties shouldn't generate too much excitement....
