Daniel McCutchen signs deal with Texas Rangers

Right-handed pitcher Daniel McCutchen announced via his twitter account that he has signed a deal with the Texas Rangers. At this point, we don’t know what kind of deal it is but most likely a minor league contract.

McCutchen, who used to be a part of the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, was with the Baltimore Orioles’ organization this past season. Within the Orioles’ system, he pitched for Double-A Bowie and then Triple-A Norfolk.

Out of the two, he had a better season in Bowie, pitching 22.1 innings and posting a 1.21 ERA. He would also post a record of 2-0 compared to Norfolk where he had a 2-2 record.

Consider this a homecoming for McCutchen as he is a Texas native and ending his college career at the University of Oklahoma. It is a strong possibility that he will open up the 2014 season in Triple-A Round Rock.
