Lucas was batting .224/.259/.396 in 143 plate appearances this season at Triple-A Tacoma. He turns 34 years old on Saturday and could struggle to find a new opportunity in MLB-affiliated ball.

Rangers signed INF Ed Lucas to a minor league contract.

He'll be at spring training with the club, per an invitation attached to the contract. Very probably, the Rangers never wanted to part with Lucas, whom they claimed off waivers from the Marlins after the season. Instead, they didn't want to waste a 40-man roster spot on him. So Texas themselves waived Lucas, and, this time, he passed through the process untouched. The 32-year-old Lucas has handled six different positions over the past two seasons with the Marlins, slashing .255/.302/.323 over 163 games. He's a solid break-glass-in-case-of-emergency piece.

Rangers sent INF Ed Lucas outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers claimed INF Ed Lucas off waivers from the Marlins.

The 32-year-old was a very versatile and valuable cog in the Marlins lineup the past two seasons, slashing .255/.302/.323 over 163 games with the Fish while handling six different positions defensively. He'll look to secure a bench job with the Rangers.

Ed Lucas finished 2-for-3, knocking in one of the Marlins' two runs in Tuesday's 2-0 victory.

Lucas broke a 0-0 tie in the fourth with a single to center field. It would prove to be all the run support Henderson Alvarez and the bullpen would need. Lucas, 32, has otherwise not shown much at the plate, hitting .254/.286/.299 with a home run and nine RBI in 187 plate appearances.

Ed Lucas doubled, singled and walked against the Phillies on Thursday.

Playing against lefties, Lucas has gone 12-for-36 with a homer in 13 games since coming off the disabled list on April 29. It doesn't give him much in the way of fantasy value, but he's a good story and he's worth rooting for.

In his first game of the season, Ed Lucas went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored against the Braves on Tuesday.
