DeRosa added to the 40 man roster 

The Rangers have apparently added Mark DeRosa to the 40 man roster.

This pretty much guarantees that he'll be the utility infielder this season, and that Ian Kinsler will start the season in AAA. Both those moves are the right thing to do, although you could definitely make the case that Marshall McDougall is more deserving of the utility infield job than DeRosa.

The Rangers are going to have to clear a spot on the 40 man to make room for DeRosa. Joaquin Benoit could be put on the 60 day D.L. or DFA'd...otherwise, Travis Hughes or Agustin Montero seem like the most likely candidates to get axed.

Greg Colbrunn, who will be starting the season on the D.L., apparently is not a candidate to get axed, as Hart announced that his roster spot is not in danger.

I just don't get it...Colbrunn has been hurt and unproductive the last two years, was awful this spring, and yet gets added to the 40 man anyway and has a secure spot while he sits on the D.L., waiting for his wrist to get better.

Makes no sense...

Your premise with Laird is that players who play with injuries should not be punished for their lack of production. Similarly, Colbrunn should not be punished for his injuries and the resulting lack of production. The difference between the two is that Colbrunn is a "Buck-approved" veteran with a known production over a longer period than Laird. Laird is less of a known quantity at the major league level.
 
The differentiation I'd make between the two is that Laird had a one-time injury, that he returned from too early, and that kept him from hitting when he came back. Prior to his injury -- both in 2004 and in 2002 and 2003 in the minors -- he showed that he could play.

Colbrunn hasn't been healthy for some time, and has had recurring, nagging injuries that are sapping his ability. He's also much younger.

Laird's situation is one of a younger player who had an injury, and has recovered from it. Colbrunn's situation is one where injuries and age have gotten him to the point where he just can't play anymore.
