Carlos Almanzar - R - Texas Rangers Oct 30
Rangers signed RHP Carlos Almanzar to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.
Almanzar appeared in the majors each season from 1998-2002, but he was never called up by the Reds in 2003. His disappointment over not being brought up caused him to leave Triple-A Louisville for most of July. When active, Almanzar had a 3.50 ERA, 23 saves and a 54/3 K/BB ratio in 46 1/3 IP. Although he isn't likely to have a spot in the Texas bullpen at the start of the year, there's a good chance Almanzar will pitch for the Rangers at some point.
3 walks in 46 1/3 innings! 3!? Get him up here quick!
