Per Jerry Crasnick on Twitter, the Rangers have reportedly signed lefthanded pitcher Nate Robertson to a minor league deal.

Interesting signing for Texas, mainly because, back in the early/mid-aughts, when he was a starting pitcher for the Tigers, Robertson was one of those guys whose name used to be thrown out there as someone the Rangers should go get, because, hey, he's lefthanded, he has okay ERAs (the product of pitching half his games in Detroit), and hey, the Rangers always need pitching, right? I mean, he has to be better than whoever else the Rangers have, doesn't he?

So, it seems kind of fitting he has ended up finally signing with Texas, even if it is just on a minor league deal.
