Tuesday a.m. Rangers stuff

After things being largely quiet the last week or two, it picked up yesterday in terms of Rangers news...

The Rangers signed Yorvit Torrealba to a two year, $6.25 million deal to be their starting catcher in 2011. 

Evan Grant says that the term "starting catcher" is being used loosely with Torrealba, who isn't expected to catch more than 110 games in 2011.

T.R. Sullivan says that the Rangers are still looking at their options for a backup catcher to Torrealba, with Matt Treanor and Taylor Teagarden the leading candidates.

Sullivan also has a piece on the Rangers' plans for the winter meetings, and what the backup plan would be if they can't sign Cliff Lee.  Sullivan indicates the Rangers aren't willing to part with Martin Perez or Tanner Scheppers, even as part of a Zack Greinke deal, and it may be the backup plan to Lee going elsewhere is Neftali Feliz moving to the rotation.

Yesterday, it was indicated that one of the options the Rangers were pursuing was Yankee free agent starter Andy Pettitte, but Nolan Ryan says that that isn't true.
