ARLINGTON (AP)  The Texas Rangers have acquired veteran utility man Nick Green and cash from the Baltimore Orioles for left-hander Zach Phillips.

Financial terms of the deal announced Tuesday weren’t disclosed.

Green was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock and not placed on the 40-man roster. He has been with Triple-A Norfolk all season, hitting .208 with 10 home runs and 46 RBIs.

The 32-year-old Green is a career .237 hitter in 393 major-league games with seven teams since 2004. He played for Toronto last season.

Phillips was designated for assignment last week when Scott Feldman was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list.
