Rangers Acquire Broussard, Non-tender Otsuka

Quick note from Geoff Baker - the Mariners sent first baseman Ben Broussard to the Rangers for minor league infielder Tug Hulett.  Makes sense; the Mariners clear $3.5MM+ from the payroll and actually get something in return.  The Rangers get a cheap stopgap first baseman who won't embarrass them.

We may never hear from Hulett again, but he's better than the nothing the Mariners would've gotten for non-tendering Broussard.

The Rangers also non-tendered Akinori Otsuka.  Last we'd heard he was throwing pain-free in October, but maybe the Rangers learned he needed Tommy John after all. (Hat tip to Rangerfans.com).
