Rangers Signal Andrew Romine
The Rangers have signed infielder Andrew Romine to a minor league contract, per a workforce announcement. He’s a part of their 60-man participant pool and can head to their alternate web site.
Previous to becoming a member of the Rangers, Romine most lately frolicked with the White Sox, who signed him to a minor league deal within the winter earlier than releasing him in July. He has mixed for a .235/.291/.300 line in 1,323 plate appearances among the many Angels, Tigers and Mariners since he first turned a significant leaguer in 2010. Romine hasn’t performed within the bigs since 2018.
Whereas Romine hasn’t had a lot offensive success thus far, he has been fairly versatile as a defender. Most of his work has come at shortstop, third base and second – positions which were sore spots for the Rangers in 2020. Common supervisor Jon Daniels advised TR Sullivan of MLB.com and different reporters Tuesday that shortstop Elvis Andrus and second baseman Rougned Odor aren’t assured beginning jobs going ahead. Nevertheless, it appears powerful to consider Romine will wind up unseating both a type of struggling gamers. He’ll should earn a roster spot first, in any case, and even that could be a tall order.
