Texas released designated hitter ERUBIEL DURAZO.
Durazo entered camp with a chance to claim a partial share of the DH role, but he didn’t hit and didn’t play much because of his presence on the WBC’s Mexican squad. By implication, Texas has granted Phil Nevin full-time DH status and in fact plan to bat him cleanup. Nevin himself hasn’t hit well this spring after an early homer barrage. If he can’t recapture his old glory, Mark Teixeira might surpass last year’s five intentional walks by the end of April.
