ARLINGTON (AP) - The Texas Rangers have claimed catcher Konrad Schmidt off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The 28-year-old Schmidt played in four games for the Diamondbacks last season and spent the rest of the year at Triple-A Reno, batting .277 with seven home runs, 24 doubles and 47 RBIs in 93 games. He threw out 14 of 55 attempted base stealers, a 25.6 percent rate that was fifth-best in the Pacific Coast League.

In eight career major league games, Schmidt is 1 for 15 with two RBIs. The Ranges have added him to their 40-man roster, which now stands at 34 players.
