Rangers ink catcher Yorvit Torrealba

The Rangers have signed catcher Yorvit Torrealba to a two-year deal worth 6.25 million dollars, according to SI.com. Torrealba hit .271 this past season with the Padres in 95 games with a .343 on-base percentage, and hit a career high .291 last season, but in just 64 games.

The Padres pitching staff owned a 3.14 ERA in the games he appeared in. The Rangers made a bold acquisition in bringing Torrealba in because he may see a bulk of the playing time if Max Ramirez and Taylor Teagarden can't land the starting job.
