San Diego gave righthander Edwin
Moreno a non-roster invite to big league camp.

 

The
Edmonton Cracker-Cats of the independent Golden Baseball League released
righthander Dan Touchet.

 

The
Fort Worth Cats of the independent American Association signed catcher Kelley Gulledge,
son of Rangers Vice President of In-Park Entertainment Chuck Morgan.

 

The
Yomiuri Giants signed infielder Edgardo Alfonzo.

 

Marlins
General Manager Michael Hill was the Rangers’ 31st-round pick in
1993.  The outfielder-first baseman out
of Harvard (where he was the football team’s leading rusher) was an Erie Sailor
in 1993 and a Hudson Valley Renegade in 1994, hitting .223/.323/.330 in those
two seasons.

 

Yeah,
I did it.  I Facebooked
“25 Things.”
  (I discovered the Hill
note while researching number 5 on my list.)

 

The
same year that Texas took Hill with the draft’s
871st selection, Seattle used a pick 870
slots earlier on a 17-year-old shortstop from a Miami high school.  Ten years after that, Hill was Florida’s assistant general
manager, while the shortstop was a Texas Ranger, and baseball’s best player, when
he says he told his wife of less than a year: “I just don’t see the light.  Where is the light?”

 

Today,
the answer to that question is easy for me.

 

Rangers
pitchers and catchers report in four days.

 

It
can’t come soon enough.
