Kevin Walker (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.asp?sport=MLB&id=6453) - R - Rangers (http://www.rotoworld.com/content/clubhouse_news.asp?sport=MLB&majteam=TEX)

Rangers signed LHP Kevin Walker and LHP Jesse Carlson to minor league contracts and invited them to spring training.
Walker, 29, appeared in nine games for the White Sox last season and allowed seven runs in seven innings. At this point, the 24-year-old Carlson is probably the more interesting of the two. The Blue Jays never gave him a chance even though he had a 2.79 ERA and a 59/12 K/BB ratio in 58 IP between Double- and Triple-A last season. Both relievers will probably open the year in Triple-A Oklahoma's pen.

First Burke, now Walker. Who's next, Timo? :tongue:

Wouldn't be surprised to see Blum in a Rangers uni.

How about Joey McBorchard. He still needs his first chance and he'd fit in with Texas, all they do is swing for the fences.

Last season they took two guys from the Sox as well, Sandy Alomar and Ruddy Yan. Alomar is now a free agent and Yan is still with the Rangers in AAA.
