Rangers acquire Nick Green from Orioles
|Richard Durrett, Jamey Newberg, Bryan Dolgin and Ben Rogers have a round-table discussion on the Texas Rangers.
Green has 393 games of major league experience with six different teams, including: Atlanta (2004), Tampa Bay (2005-06) and the Yankees (2006), Seattle (2007), Boston (2009), the Dodgers (2010) and Toronto (2010). He has a career .237 average in the majors with 16 homers and 96 RBIs. He has played the majority of those stints in the infield at second, third and short.
Phillips, 24, was designated for assignment on Thursday to make room for Scott Feldman to be reinstated from the 60-day disabled list. So the club had 10 days to get him through waivers, trade him or release. So they at least get something for the lefty, who was at Triple-A Round Rock all season going 1-3 with a 4.43 ERA and three saves in 44 2/3 innings pitched (33 relief appearances). He hasn't made it to the big leagues yet, but was at major league spring training the last two seasons. He was taken by the Rangers in the 23rd round of the 2004 draft.
