Chad Tracy went 2-for-4 with two doubles and three RBI against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Tracy doubled home two in the fourth inning and another in the sixth. He wasn't hitting much entering Wednesday's action. The 33-year-old is trying to join the Angels as a left-handed bench bat but it's hard to see there being enough room on the roster for him.

Chad Tracy blasted his fourth home run of the season on Saturday, helping to power the Nationals to a 2-0 victory over the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

The 33-year-old utility man has struggled in limited at-bats this season, hitting just .202/.243/.326 with four homers and 11 RBI in 129 at-bats. His days of fantasy relevancy are long gone.
