Rangers trade Zach Phillips to Baltimore

The Texas Rangers have traded lefthanded reliever Zach Phillips to the Baltimore Orioles for Nick Green and cash.

Phillips was designated for assignment when the Rangers needed to open up a 40 man roster spot when Scott Feldman was activated from the 60 day disabled list.

Green, an infielder, is not on the 40 man roster, and will go to Round Rock, where he will provide middle infield depth for the organization.

Green, meanwhile, has spent time in the majors with Boston, the Yankees, Toronto, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Seattle, and the Dodgers.
