Texas signed pitcher BRIAN ANDERSON to a minor-league contract.
Anderson had Tommy John surgery last July and won’t help Texas until midseason assuming Texas requires his assistance. He had trundled along as an adequate innings-eater until 2004-2005, during which he posted a 5.80 ERA and struck out fewer than four batters per nine innings. Bleaker still, he surrendered forty homers in 197 innings in the AL’s least homer-friendly park. With a healthier arm, perhaps Anderson can fill in as an acceptable #5 starter come August.
