SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) – Left-hander Neal Cotts has agreed to a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers.

Cotts, who appeared in all four World Series games for the Chicago White Sox in 2005, hasn’t pitched professionally since having ligament-replacement surgery in July 2009.

The Rangers announced the signing Monday and said the 31-year-old will be in their minor league camp.

In 284 career major league games with the White Sox and Chicago Cubs, Cotts has a 10-12 record with a 4.63 ERA. He was 4-0 with a 1.95 ERA in 69 appearances in 2005 for the White Sox, and was the winner in Game 2 of the World Series.
