ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – The Texas Rangers have signed utility player Charlie Culberson to a minor league deal and invited the veteran to big league spring training. The 31-year-old Culberson played for Atlanta the past three seasons. He batted .143 in nine games during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, was designated for assignment in September and rejoined the Braves as part of their postseason roster before becoming a free agent after the season. Culberson, who played at Calhoun High School, is a career .249 hitter with 23 homers in 427 games over eight seasons. He is versatile defensively, with experience at every position except catcher and center field.
