Rangers Designate Alex Cora For Assignment

The Rangers designated infielder Alex Cora for assignment to create roster space for Esteban German. The Rangers signed Cora last month after the Mets released him, but the 34-year-old played in just four games for Texas, batting only seven times (he singled twice). 

German, 32, has not yet appeared in the majors this season, though he is an eight-year major league veteran. He posted a .280/.371/.388 line at Triple A this year, spending most of his time at short, second and third. The utilityman also played left and center, though the Rangers presumably intend to use German on the infield.

Cora is actually useful and he didnt even get used

Really? A .244/.311/.341 career hitter, one with a .210/.266/.278 line this year, and exactly 0 wins above replacement [Fangraphs’ system] over the past 3 seasons (2008, 2009, 2010) combined is useful?

Or perhaps I’m just totally missing the sarcasm….

Esteban Yourmom…. That’s what I always called him!

This had the chance to be funny, but didn’t quite make the mark.

Time for Mr. Cora to get into the minor leagues and start coaching…

Mets should claim him. He’d be a great utility man and is scrappy.

Maybe the Phillies will claim him, they have had a pretty strong obsession with former Met castoffs.
