Signed OF JASON TYNER and pitcher MIKE BACSIK to minor-league deals.

Texas had declined to offer a Major-League deal to Tyner two days before. Bacsik, 26, has a 6.22 career ERA in 81 innings spread over three seasons. Bacsik has never pitched better than respectably in AAA, posting a 3.24 ERA in 2001. Bacsik has a chance to join the AAA rotation with an outside shot at pitching for Texas if injuries or ineffectiveness thin out the ranks. His father pitcher for Texas during 1975-1997.
