ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Orlando Hernandez has agreed to a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers.

El Duque, part of World Series championships with two teams, is expected to join Triple-A Oklahoma City for workouts Sunday. He could start pitching soon after that.

El Duque, who won with the New York Yankees and with the Chicago White Sox, is expected to join Triple-A Oklahoma City for workouts Sunday. He could start pitching soon after that.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels says Hernandez, who hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2007, is in great shape. Daniels called it a low-risk move that could provide experienced depth in the bullpen.

Hernandez is 90-65 with a 4.13 ERA in 211 starts and eight relief appearances for the Yankees (1998-2002, 2004), Chicago White Sox (2005), Arizona (2006) and New York Mets (2006-07).
