Rangers Sign Manny Corpas

The Rangers signed Manny Corpas to a minor league deal, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News (on Twitter). The Rockies released Corpas this November, two months after he underwent Tommy John ligament replacement surgery. Corpas probably won't pitch in 2011, while he recovers.

Corpas posted a 4.62 ERA with 6.8 K/9, 2.5 BB/9 and a 42.5% ground ball rate in 2010. Defense independent pitching stats suggest his ERA should have been lower last year, and he was one of the youngest free agents available.

      If someone would sign Brian Bannister, it’d be Manny being Banny.

    Why are we adding all these questionable minor league relievers today? Doesn’t make much sense.

      Obviously you didn’t get the memo that this thread is really about Manny Ramirez

      Have you seen all of the cuts and retirements going on around the league? These signings are to fill out the rosters for the season. Manny Corpas is actually one of the better, more notable minor league deals.
