Rangers fill the last spot on the 40 man roster...with a hitter

The Rangers, who had 39 players on the 40 man roster, are now back up to 40, having claimed Colorado first baseman Joe Koshansky on waivers.

He turns 27 in May, went from being a C+ on Sickels' list before 2008 to not making his top 20 list this year, and, I suspect, will be put back on waivers by the Rangers at some point in the next week or so.

So why make the claim?  Because if the Rangers waive him, and he clears, they can outright him and keep him in the organization.  That's my guess, anyway.

That's all I've got.  Maybe z knows something about him and can give us a scouting report.
