The Former Ranger Update

Fab 5 Freddy Guzman cleared waivers and was outrighted today, much as Chris Shelton cleared waivers and was outrighted over the winter.

Nick Masset, whose inclusion in the Danks/McCarthy deal was the source of some consternation among some Ranger fans who thought he was ready to break out, appears likely to join Guzman on the waiver wire.  And since he's already been outrighted once (remember, the Rangers took him off the 40 man roster when he was in AA), if he clears waivers, he can elect to become a free agent.

He got shelled today, and appears to be the South Side Sox version of Rod "Popup" Barajas.

Or the South Side Sox version of R.A. Dickey or Brad Wilkerson, both of whom are mentioned as "key additions" that the Mariners hope will help them beat the Angels this year, in an mlb.com article.


Ramon Nivar, and his game-changing speed, has been released by the Padres.
