Rangers Sign Khalil Greene

The Rangers officially signed infielder Khalil Greene today to a one-year, $750K deal.  The agreement was first reported by MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan on January 9th.

Greene, 30, hit .200/.272/.347 in 193 plate appearances for the Cardinals last year, tallying 240.3 innings at shortstop and 96 at third base.  He'll serve as a utility infielder for Texas.  On December 4th, 2008, the Cards acquired Greene from the Padres for pitchers Mark Worrell and Luke Gregerson.  Greene had a promising spring, but hit the DL in May with social anxiety disorder.  Earlier this month, ESPN's Buster Olney wrote that Greene has been working out diligently at Vanderbilt this offseason with his former college coach.
