The Texas Rangers cleared the way for Andruw Jones to make their opening-day roster by releasing Frank Catalanotto on Wednesday.

Jones, who won 10 consecutive Gold Gloves as Atlanta's center fielder, recovered from a slow start and is batting .293 with three home runs and six RBIs in 58 at-bats this spring. The move gives Jones the team's final roster spot as a fifth outfielder and a right-handed designated hitter.

"From an organizational standpoint, we feel that he's made progress to that point where we want to let it play out during the season," general manager Jon Daniels said.

Catalanotto hit .317 this spring, but he's a lefty-hitting first baseman, left fielder and DH. The Rangers already have Chris Davis at first, David Murphy in left and Hank Blalock at DH. All hit left-handed.


Quote:
"I wasn't 100 percent sure exactly what we were going to see," Daniels said. "It was clear that he had lost weight, that his knee was healthy and that he was in a good state of mind. He did not have a sense of entitlement. He really got after it to make the club."

It was worth the risk as far as i am concerned. He is on a roll of pennies contract.
