Rangers Sign Lofton

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers are close to signing the one legitimate center fielder remaining on the free agent market - Kenny Lofton.  All that would be left: Darin Erstad and Steve Finley.

Lofton will turn 40 in May.  He's above average offensively for his position, though his range is obviously slipping.  The Rangers will sort out the corners and DH spot with Frank Catalanotto, Brad Wilkerson, Nelson Cruz, and Jason Botts.

The Cubs may have to get creative for their CF vacancy until Felix Pie is ready.

UPDATE: The deal is said to be for one year and $6MM.
