Signed relief pitcher RON MAHAY to a one-year contract for an undisclosed sum.
Mahay enjoyed a career season with Texas in 2003, hurling 45 innings with a 3.18 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. The lefty was originally drafted as an outfielder by the Red Sox in 1991 and converted to pitcher in 1996. Mahay allowed only a .248 average on balls put in play, very low for a Ranger pitcher. I don't expect him to repeat his 2003 campaign, but as long as he can keep his ERA below 4.50, he'll earn his salary, which I'd guess isn't too far above the minimum.
