Rangers Sign 2 Pitchers To Minor Deals With Invites

ARLINGTON (AP) – Left-hander Mitch Stetter and right-hander Sean Green have agreed to minor league contracts with the Texas Rangers that include invitations to major league spring training.

Stetter and Green were on Milwaukee’s opening-day roster last season, but didn’t pitch for the NL Central champion Brewers after mid-May.

Also Monday, the Rangers revealed hearing dates for their remaining salary arbitration-eligible players; shortstop Elvis Andrus (Feb. 9), catcher Mike Napoli (Feb. 15) and outfielder Nelson Cruz (Feb. 17). All the hearings will be in Tampa, Fla., unless deals are reached before then.

Stetter spent most of last season on the disabled list with left hip irritation. He made 16 appearances before going on the disabled list.

Green was 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in 14 appearances before being designated for assignment.
