Brian Jordan to Rangers

Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers signed free-agent outfielder Brian Jordan to a one-year contract Saturday.

Jordan, a former All-Star who missed the second half of last season after knee surgery, became a free agent when the Los Angeles Dodgers didn't exercise a $10.5 million team option for 2004, and paid him a $2.5 million buyout.

Terms of his contract with Texas weren't released.

Jordan hit .299 with six homers and 28 RBI in 66 games last season before having surgery July 11 for tendinitis in his left knee. He is expected to be at full strength when spring training starts.

In 1,271 games over 12 seasons with St. Louis, Atlanta and Los Angeles, Jordan hit .287 with 173 homers and 764 RBI. He was an All-Star with the Braves in 1999, when he hit .283 with 23 homers and 115 RBI.

The Rangers were also close on a one-year contract with outfielder David Dellucci, who played for Texas manager Showalter in Arizona from 1998-00. Dellucci's signing is expected Monday.

If he can stay healthy then he should have a huge year in Texas. I still don't understand why they aren't spending their money on Starting pitching though...

I might take a chance on Jordon, but only in really deep leagues... there are SO many OFs out there...
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

Texas needs to trade some of their prospects for some starting pitching.
