Broussard Designated

THURSDAY: According to Jamey Newberg, Broussard has been designated for assignment.

WEDNESDAY: Evan Grant's article from late last night implies that the Rangers could designate first baseman Ben Broussard when Marlon Byrd returns from the DL next week.  Broussard has been pushed to the bench following 89 ugly plate appearances.  He's earning $3.85MM this year.  Grant has wondered whether a Broussard release would be paired with a Ron Washington firing.

Broussard, 31, was last effective in 2006 when he hit righties well.  Still, for the minimum salary he's a low-risk bench addition.  Broussard could be the first of many Rangers vets to depart.  Grant suggests Frank Catalanotto and Gerald Laird would be nice fits for the Yankees.  They probably wouldn't mind having Kevin Millwood, either.
