Transaction

Texas signed pitchers Derek Lee, Lou Pote, Matt Riley, and Cory Vance and infielder Jace Brewer to minor-league contracts for 2006.

The Rangers get a head start on filling out their minor-league rosters. Riley has the most upside, or perhaps “had;� he underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time in June and shouldn’t contribute much to the organization in 2006. Former Colorado prospect Vance last made the news in June 2004, when Texas dropped the injured pitcher from the 40-man roster. Brewer is a handy utility guy who bounced around between AAA Oklahoma and AA Frisco.
