News: Schierholtz signed a minor league contract with the Rangers on Friday, which includes an invite to spring training.
Impact: The Rangers are slated to go into the season with Michael Choice starting in left field, so it definitely makes sense to add a veteran corner outfielder. Schierholtz hit just .195 with seven homers and four steals in 383 plate appearances last season, so it's not surprising that he couldn't score a big league deal, but there is still a chance that he makes the team out of spring training.

News: Schierholtz has agreed to a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers after hitting a career-worst .195 last year.
Impact: Schierholtz, who turns 31 on Feb. 15, split last season with the Cubs and Washington, which agreed to a deal on Aug. 18, four days after Chicago released him.
