Rangers signed OF Jordan Danks to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Danks was up with the Phillies briefly last season but spent most of the year at Triple-A, hitting .257/.318/.368 with six homers. John's younger brother is merely a depth add.

Jordan Danks hit his third home run in two days, blasting a solo homer off of Cory Rasmus in the eighth inning in his only at-bat.
