Texas Rangers Sign Veteran Reliever

The Texas Rangers add to their depth.

The Rangers have signed pitcher Zack Littell to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training.

This past season, with the San Francisco Giants, Littell struggled to a 5.08 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 39 strikeouts over 44.1 innings of work. 

The five-year veteran pitcher holds a career 4.08 ERA, 1.33 WHIP with 151 strikeouts over 169.2 innings. With 141 relief appearances, the twenty-seven-year-old brings some valuable experience and depth to the Rangers.

Littell has a very good chance of making the Rangers' Opening Day roster as a middle-innings reliever.

He's a former 11th-round pick by the Seattle Mariners in the 2013 MLB Draft.
