Vazquez Signs

Texas signed infielder RAMON VAZQUEZ to a one-year contract for $810,000. Vazquez was arbitration-eligible.

Last year, Vazquez was a fifth infielder who started 85 games and had 345 appearances subbing for various injured infielders, mostly Hank Blalock. Ideally, he’s a sixth infielder regardless of whether infielders #1-#5 are healthy, and not a terrible signing as long as he’s limited to 25 starts and/or 150 plate appearances from the bottom of the order. And if Texas pulls a “sign and cut? a la John Wasdin and Rick Bauer, well, who cares.
