Rangers Claim Hernan Iribarren Off Waivers

12:13pm: The Rangers have claimed Iribarren, tweets Haudricourt. Texas was on the lookout for a utility player after voiding Khalil Greene's contract. 

12:03pm: The Brewers have placed infielder Hernan Iribarren on waivers according to Tom Haudricourt of The Journal Sentinel, and they expire today. Iribarren is out of options, and needs to clear waivers to go to the minors.

The 25-year-old is a .185/.241/.296 hitter in 29 big league plate appearances, though he's a .314/.371/.418 hitter in the minor leagues. Iribarren has spent the majority of his time at second base, though he's also seen a little time at third and in the outfield.

I guess this means that they don’t want Ramon Vazquez anymore.

I hope the Rangers still trade for Vazquez, but this may make it unlikely. I hope that Vazquez isn’t with the Pirates on April 5, either gone by trade or release.

I could be wrong, but I think optional waivers are revokable.
