Rangers take Miclat
The Rangers have acquired IF Greg Miclat from the Orioles. He is primarily a second baseman but he can play shortstop. He is a switch-hitter. Here is the Rangers release:
The Texas Rangers announced today that the club has acquired infielder Greg Miclat from Baltimore as the player to be named later in the December 1 trade involving Taylor Teagarden and Randy Henry.
Miclat, 24, batted .280 with 2 home runs and 24 RBI in 120 games with Double-A Bowie last season, compiling a .371 on-base percentage. The Virginia native was originally selected by Baltimore in the fifth round of the 2008 June draft and has spent his entire four-year professional career in the Orioles system. The switch-hitter played primarily second base in 2011 after previously playing exclusively at shortstop.
Miclat does not go on the 40-man roster, and has been placed on the roster of Double-A Frisco. The Rangers currently have 37 players on the club’s 40-man roster.
