The Rangers have signed 41-year old lefty reliever Arthur Rhodes to a 1-year deal with a vesting option for the 2012 season. Rhodes pitched in 69 games (0 starts) for the Reds last season and he was 4-4 with a 2.29 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. He whiffed 50 hitters in 55 innings last season while only giving up 38 hits as he is still nasty. Rhodes has now pitched in 849 games (61 starts) in his first 19 years in the majors and he is 84-66 with 32 saves, a 4.06 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. I really like this signing for the Rangers as Rhodes will team with Darren Oliver to give them a nasty pair of lefties in the pen.
