Texas Gets Minor Leaguer To Wrap Up Teagarden Deal

DALLAS (AP) — The Rangers have acquired minor league infielder Greg Miclat from Baltimore to complete a trade that sent catcher Taylor Teagarden to the Orioles.

Texas announced the completion of the deal Thursday, the last day of baseball’s winter meetings and a week after Teagarden was traded to Baltimore.

In exchange, the Rangers got minor league right-hander Randy Henry and a player to be named, which became the switch-hitting Miclat.

The 24-year-old Miclat hit .280 with two home runs and 24 RBIs in 120 games with Double-A Bowie last season. He was placed on the roster of Double-A Frisco and is not on the Rangers’ 40-man roster.

Texas also Thursday selected three players in the Rule 5 draft — left-hander Fabian Williamson, outfielder Efrain Nunez and infielder Alex Buchholz.

    Interesting. The article left out Miclat’s amazing 52 our of 56 steals for the 2011 season with Bowie. Once again the Orioles show they are clueless and may have given up the best base stealer in their minor league system for a catcher that will not see the light of day in Baltimore thanks to Matt Weiters. They even threw in a picture to ensure they remain a laughing stock.
