Rangers keep Esteban German
The Rangers have signed infielder Esteban German to a 2010 contract instead of non-tendering him. Club officials had suggested the Rangers might not offer him a contract and make him a free agent. But instead they worked out a contract and he remains with the Rangers as a utilility infielder candidate.
The Rangers offered contracts to all their arbitration-eligible players including pitchers Scott Feldman, Chris Ray, Frank Francisco, C.J. Wilson, Dustin Nippert and Brandon McCarthy, and Josh Hamilton.
Only German was in doubt.
