Transaction

Texas signed DH ERUBIEL DURAZO to a minor-league contract.

A nice pickup. Durazo averaged .290/.385/.477 in Oakland during 2003-2004, his only two years of healthy and full-time play. Elbow tendonitis and eventual Tommy John surgery wrecked his 2005 campaign. He’ll make half a million if he makes the team. He hits lefties adequately but probably would be the “right? half of a DH platoon with Nevin if both are still on the squad come April. As to where Jason Botts fits in all this… he doesn’t.
