Texas Rangers sign Danny Duffy and four others to minor league deals

The Texas Rangers have officially signed five more players to minor league contracts as they continue to build their spring training roster.

Deal deals for two right-handed pitchers, Ian Kennedy and Reyes Moronta, had previously been reported.

The three other deals announced Friday involved left-handed pitcher Danny Duffy and fielders Clint (Jackson) Frazier and Travis Jankowski.

Offers include invitations to Major League Spring Training.

Kennedy announced his deal with the Rangers on Instagram Thursday night. The 38-year-old reliever was with the Rangers in 2021, where he saved 16 games and had a 2.51 ERA before the Rangers traded him to Philadelphia as part of their Kyle Gibson deal.

In 16 MLB seasons Kennedy is 104-113 with 66 saves, a 4.14 ERA and 1,754 strikeouts. His best season was in 2011 with Arizona, when he went 21-4 with a 2.88 ERA and finished fourth in National League Cy Young voting.

Moronta, 30, went 2-2 with two saves and a 4.30 ERA in 39 games with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona in 2022. He stormed with the San Francisco Giants in 2017 and played three seasons for the current Rangers manager Bruce Bochy. He has a 10-11 career record and three saves with a 3.02 ERA.

Duffy, 34, is a longtime starter with Kansas City, where he spent 11 seasons with the Royals and helped them win the 2015 World Series. He went 4-3 with a 2.51 ERA in 2022 and his career high is a 68-68 record with a 3.95 ERA and 1,048 strikeouts.

Frazier, 28, hit .216 in 19 games with the Chicago Cubs in 2022. The six-year veteran is a career .238 hitter with 44 doubles, five triples, 29 home runs and 98 RBI.

Jankowski, 31, hit .164 in 44 games for the New York Mets and Seattle last season. The former first-round pick has a career .236 batting average with nine home runs, 54 RBI, and 72 stolen bases.

The pitchers and catchers report for spring training at the team’s facility in Surprise, Arizona on February 15, with the position players following by February 20.

The Spring Training game schedule begins February 24 with a game against Kansas City at the Surprise Complex shared with the Royals.

The Rangers wrap up their exhibition season with a pair of games at Globe Life Field against the Royals on March 27 and 28. The Rangers open the regular season at home against Philadelphia on March 30.
