The Rangers announced that they have signed Brendan Harris to a minor league contract. The veteran infielder had a cup of coffee in the Yankees' system before signing with Texas today. Harris will help provide extra infield depth for the Rangers who have been thin since Leury Garcia was traded to the White Sox in the Alex Rios trade.
Harris, who celebrates his 33rd birthday on Monday, signed with the Yankees on July 26th and hit just .233/.356/.315 with one homer in 22 games. Prior to that, Harris was batting .206/.252/.355 in 117 plate appearances this year for the Angels. The veteran has big league experience at all four infield positions with the bulk of it at shortstop. Harris, who last saw regular action in 2009 with the Twins, is a career .256/.314/.381 hitter.
