Released outfielder JASON TYNER. Signed outfielder GARY MATTHEWS JR. to a minor-league contract.

The Jason Tyner Era comes to an ignominious close. Tyner actually occupied Texas's 40-man roster for a few weeks. Texas made a definitive upgrade in their outfield depth, as Matthews switch-hits and can play any outfield spot. Matthews is nothing special but does have a career OBP and slugging percentage above .300, which is more than can be said of Tyner.
