Omar Vizquel, the winner of 11 Gold Gloves, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rangers. The shortstop will be invited to spring training, where he will compete to be the utility infielder. He could also serve as a mentor to his countryman, Elvis Andrus.
The Rangers have also invited catcher Adam Melhuse to camp. He was on the Opening Day roster last year but was released after injuring his hand in late April.
