T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers are going to sign John Patterson to a minor league deal.
That's fine with me. He was good recently. If he gets back to his old self, the Rangers got themselves a good pitcher. If not, well, no big loss.
I would guess that this means the AAA rotation starts out as Luis Mendoza (to keep him on pace with the 5th starter schedule in Texas), Eric Hurley, Patterson, Doug Mathis, and A.J. Murray.
