Busy Rangers add Khalil Greene

Limited to 77 games last season due to anxiety-related issues, the
30-year-old Greene hit just .200/.272/.347 with six home runs and 24
RBI. With Elvis Andrus as the clear starter at shortstop, Greene is
expected to fill a utility role similar to what Omar Vizquel did last
season in Texas. Before appearing in 16 games at third base last season
for the Cardinals, Greene had never appeared at any position other than
shortstop during his major league career. He only has a small showing
at third base, but he isn’t rated very highly at either position,
according to UZR (Ultimate Zone Rating).

It’s pretty clear that finding a major league contract was important to
Greene, so it’s a small victory that he received anything more than a
minor league deal, however this probably isn’t the best situation for
him to reestablish his value.
