Outrighted catcher TODD GREENE to Triple-A Oklahoma, removing him from the 40-man roster. Greene refused the assignment and became a free agent.
Einar Diaz and his ridiculous $2.5 million salary aren't going anywhere without the Rangers paying for him to play elsewhere in 2004, and Gerald Laird appears just about ready from prime time. Greene is somewhat mischaracterized as an offensive catcher. He's good for the occasional homer but doesn't hit for average and would rather take a bullet than a walk. He'll latch on somewhere and has an outside shot at returning to Texas.
