Frank Catalanotto, who is 35 years-old, just signed a deal with the Crew after being waived by the Texas Rangers. He should be able to make his way up through the farm by June 1st. It's do or die for Brad Nelson.
With resurgence of Andruw Jones, the Rangers felt that Catalanotto was expendable. This is a nice pick up for the Crew and it adds another veteran player to the already solid outfield. Not to mention, an additional left-handed hitter! He has an .807 OPS and a .292 batting average. He also has the highest batting average for a pinch hitter (.289) amongst active players.
