Texas adds Castellanos on waiver claim from Boston

The Texas Rangers have received outfielder Alex Castellanos on a

waiver claim from Boston.

The Red Sox acquired Castellanos in a trade with the Los Angeles

on Oct. 23. The 27-year-old was designated for assignment Dec. 12

when Boston re-signed free agent Mike Napoli.

Castellanos spent most of last season with Triple-A Albuquerque,

hitting .257 with 19 home runs and 61 RBIs. He is a career .171

hitter in the majors in 24 games, all with the Dodgers.

With Monday’s move, the Rangers have a full 40-man roster.
