ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers have acquired infielder Joe Inglett on a waiver claim from Toronto, bringing in a utility player after Omar Vizquel's departure.
Inglett has a .293 career average in 211 games for Cleveland (2006) and Toronto (2007-09). He has made major league starts at second base, third base and shortstop and at every outfield position. He has made 111 of his 122 career starts at second base.
The Rangers are looking for a utility infielder after Vizquel signed a one-year deal with the Chicago White Sox.
Inglett was initially selected by Cleveland in the eighth round of the June 2000 draft, and acquired by the Blue Jays on a waiver claim in September 2007.
With the move Friday, the Rangers have 38 players on their 40-man roster.
