Rangers claim utility man Andy Parrino

3/3/2014

The Texas Rangers claimed infielder Andy Parrino off waivers from the Oakland A's on Monday. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the club placed Derek Holland on the 60-day disabled list.

Parrino has played second base, third baes, shortstop, left field and right field in the big leagues. The 28-year-old played in 14 games for the A's last season and was also in the majors with San Diego in 2011 and 2012. He was at Triple-A Sacramento for most of last season, batting .210 with four homers and 36 RBIs in 108 games. He has a career .186 average in the majors in 93 games (194 at-bats).

Parrino is expected to be in camp Tuesday.

Holland is still rehabbing from knee surgery and has not yet joined the club in Arizona.
