  10. Rangers add Hall to catching corps

    Jan 22, 2010, 5:24 PM EDT

    It sounded like the Rangers wanted a legitimate alternative starting catcher because of the lingering questions about the health of Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s shoulder. Instead, what they ended up with on Friday was Toby Hall. Hall seemed to pretty much wreck his career when he opted to play through a torn labrum in 2007. He hit…

  19. Damon, Yankees still a match

    Jan 19, 2010, 5:47 PM EDT

    As we covered yesterday, there are more outfielders available than jobs open at the moment.

    Clearing a 40-man roster spot for Brendan Donnelly, the Pirates on Monday traded infielder Brian Bixler to the Indians for fellow infielder Jesus Brito.
