Waiting for word from Cliff Lee hasn’t stopped the Rangers from making moves, as they’ve re-signed Matt Treanor to a one-year, $850,000 contract.
Acquired from the Brewers last spring, Treanor actually led Rangers catchers in starts with 67. He moved into a backup role once Texas traded for Bengie Molina and will serve as Yorvit Torrealba’s understudy in 2011.
Treanor threw out just 20 percent of steal attempts and hit just .211 with a .595 OPS, but Rangers pitchers had a lot of success with him behind the plate and general manager Jon Daniels praised “the presence he had in our clubhouse.”
