Ludwick signs with Rangers
Some quick former Reds news. Free agent outfielder Ryan Ludwick signed a Minor League contract with the Rangers and will be in Spring Training as a non-roster player at big league camp. He will compete for a spot in left field and DH with Texas.
Ludwick, 36, played for the Rangers in parts of the 2002-03 seasons. He was with the Reds from 2012-14 and batted .258/.324/.441 with 37 home runs and 137 RBIs in 275 games. Most of the big production came in 2012, when he had 26 homers and 80 RBIs. The 2013 season began with a separated right shoulder suffered on Opening Day and Ludwick never returned to the power threat he was the final two seasons in Cincinnati. There was no expectation that he would return when last season ended.
