    Texas released reliever Yoshinori Tateyama, who re-signed with the Rangers on a minor-league contract back in December after spending most of last season at Triple-A. Tateyama has an ugly 5.75 ERA in 61 innings for the Rangers, but that comes with an excellent 61/17 K/BB ratio and he also has a 1.48 ERA and 71/11…

    Yoshinori Tateyama became a free agent in late October when Texas declined his $1.2 million option for 2013, but the 36-year-old reliever is returning to the Rangers on a minor-league contract. Tateyama pitched well as rookie in 2011 after coming over from Japan, throwing 44 innings with a 4.50 ERA and 43/11 K/BB ratio, but…

    The Rangers can come close to matching their AL West rivals; all they’d need to do is commit $150 million-$200 million to free agent Prince Fielder and then another $80 million-$100 million in the form of a posting fee and a contract for Yu Darvish. What’s the big deal? As things stand now, the Rangers are currently…

  5. Rangers sign Japanese reliever Yoshinori Tateyama

    Yoshinori Tateyama

    Japanese reliever Yoshinori Tateyama has signed a one-year contract with the Rangers that also includes team options for 2012 and 2013. Unlike higher-profiles Japanese players such as Hisashi Iwakuma and Tsuyoshi Nishioka there was no “posting fee” required to negotiate with Tateyama, as he’s a 35-year-old veteran who was simply a free agent following 12…
