The Rangers have signed 28-year old lefty starting pitcher Scott Olsen to a minor league deal. Olsen pitched in only 3 games (all starts) in Rookie+AAA-ball last year for the White Sox in which he was 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. Olsen last pitched in the majors back in 2010. He has pitched in 130 games (127 starts) in his first six years in the majors and he is 37-49 with a 4.85 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. Olsen has had shoulder problems the last couple of years, but it doesn’t hurt to take a flier on a still young pitcher who has had some success at the major league level.
