Ryan Theriot rumors: Indians, Rangers

Jason O. Watson

The Indians and Rangers have also expressed interest in free agent infielder Ryan Theriot.

Yesterday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported that the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants were among the teams interested in free agent Ryan Theriot. This afternoon, Heyman adds that the Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians have also expressed some interest in the infielder.

Theriot signed with the Giants last January and spent the season with the club. He played in 104 games for San Francisco, hitting .270/.316/.321 with 16 doubles and one triple over 352 at-bats.

At this point, most teams expressing interest in Theriot seem to be doing so as a reserve player. The 33-year-old has primarily manned both middle infield positions over the years, but he's also played third base and left and right field.

Theriot has spent eight seasons at the major league level as a member of the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals and Giants. He owns a career line of .281/.341/.350 during his time in the bigs.
