Rangers sign Chris Richard 

The Rangers have apparently signed outfielder Chris Richard to a minor league deal.

Richard was a decent backup outfielder a few years ago, and was dealt straight up for Jack Cust in 2003, back when Cust was still thought of as a decent prospect.

He has missed most of the past two years with shoulder problems, though, and is attempting a comeback.

On a team with too many fourth outfielders as it is, I don't really see much chance of Richard contributing. And I'm a bit confused about why the Rangers would axe Pete Zoccolillo -- younger than Richard, and a better hitter -- to make room for him.
