Brewers interested in Ranger rejectee Catalanotto

The Texas Rangers released Frank Catalanotto in order to keep roster space for a sluggish Andruw Jones. Catalanotto played first base at times for the Rangers last season and has played numerous positions throughout his career.

The Brewers might be interested in an extra left handed bat, as well as a guy that is versatile enough to play first base, third base, and possibly the outfield (although that is not really a need of the Brewers).

Catalanotto is a lifetime .292 hitter, and a career .289 hitter in pich hit situations. As foxsports.com reports, "Catalanotto, who turns 35 on April 27, had a good spring, and his pinch-hitting proficiency would make him a useful National League player."

He could wind up being a solid cheap pick up for the club as the Rangers will have to pay the majority of his $6 million remainins salary. Currently the Marlins are toying with the idea of signing Catalanotto even after acquiring Ross Gload from the Royals.

In my eyes Catalanotto would bring more to the table than Counsell's measely .226 BA last year.

The Rangers gamble on a faded star (Andruw Jones) may result in a nother team's gain.
