Greene Gone

Texas voided the contract of infielder KHALIL GREENE.

The combination of treatment and lesser expectations apparently weren't enough to bring Greene back onto the diamond. This would be an exceptionally lousy way to lose a career, so best wishes for his recovery.

Meanwhile, Joaquin Arias lives! Suddenly, he's the best backup shortstop in camp, as Esteban German has barely played there in the minors and Ray Olmedo is Ray Olmedo. Arias has a genuine shot, his last shot, at flying to Arlington at the end of March. I'd say it's no worse than 50/50 that the Rangers trade for a 5th infielder before Opening Day. (If you're getting this on RSS, I'm two days late. Accidentally posted it as a "draft.")
