  • Rangers sign Justin Ruggiano; trade prospect Will Lamb

    Justin Ruggiano snagged a one-year deal from the Rangers. Last year, he hit .248 with a 4.72 slugging percentage between the Mariners and Dodgers. 25-year-old minor leaguer Will Lamb, drafted in the 2nd round of 2011, had a 1.58 ERA in 2014, but slumped to 4.42 in 2015. He reached Triple-A for the first time this year. They get Myles Jaye of the White Sox in return. He is 23 years old and has never played above Double-A.

    Free-agent outfielder Justin Ruggiano finally gets to play for the team he grew up rooting for while giving the Texas Rangers a needed right-handed bat.

    Ruggiano agreed Thursday to a $1.65 million, one-year contract with the AL West champions.

    The Texas Rangers have made a couple of moves today, signing outfielder James Jones to a minor league deal, and trading lefthanded pitcher Will Lamb to the Chicago White Sox for righthanded pitcher Myles Jaye.
