Rangers Claim Ryan Garko

The Rangers claimed first baseman Ryan Garko off waivers from the Mariners, according to a team press release.

The Giants non-tendered Garko in December, and the Mariners signed him in February for $550K with plans for a platoon with Casey Kotchman.  Instead Garko will be paired with Chris Davis in Texas, given the former's ability to crush lefties.  The move ends the Mike Lowell trade talk for now, which was never too serious during the spring anyway.
