The Texas Rangers have signed 29-year old lefty swinging SS/2B Omar Quintanilla to a minor league deal. Quintanilla played in 34 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies last season and he was 30 of 119 (.252 avg, .669 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 1 homer, 15 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Quintanilla last played in the majors in 2009 with the Rockies. He has now played in 216 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 110 of 500 (.220 avg, .567 OPS) with 60 runs scored, 2 homers, 32 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Quintanilla won’t have a chance to make the Rangers next spring as he still has games to serve on a 50-game suspension he received last August for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs.
