Rangers sign Brendan Harris

The Rangers added another utility infielder to their organization today.

The team announced they signed Brendan Harris to a minor-league contract, a couple hours after the Yankees released him.

Harris, who turns 33 on Monday, had been with the Yankees since July 26. He started the season with the Angels, making their Opening Day roster. He batted .206 with four home runs and nine RBIs in 44 games with the Angels, and was designated for assignment on July 20.

Harris will report to Triple A Round Rock. The Rangers have a shortage of utility infield candidates in the minors after Leury Garcia was traded to the White Sox in exchange for Alex Rios this month. Adam Rosales is currently filling that role for the Rangers with Jurickson Profar being a regular in the lineup.
