Rangers acquire Whiteside

The Rangers have acquired catcher Eli Whiteside on waivers from Toronto. They have also signed Brandon Snyder to a Minor League contract.

Whiteside, 33, has now been claimed on waivers by three different clubs this offseason.  He had been acquired by Toronto in a waiver claim from New York-AL on December 3 after the Yankees had designated him for assignment on November 28.  The Yankees acquired him in a waiver claim from San Francisco on November 5.  Whiteside had been arbitration-eligible for 2013, but signed a contract with the Yankees on November 24, which makes him a signed player for next season.
