The Rangers signed veteran catcher Kevin Plawecki to a Major League deal on Wednesday.

The signing fills a roster spot after utility man Nick Solak was placed on the 60-day injured list with a right foot fracture.

Plawecki is an eight-year MLB veteran who has spent time with the Mets (2015-18), Cleveland (‘19) and the Red Sox (‘20-22). He was selected by the Mets in the supplemental first round of the 2012 MLB Draft. He was designated for assignment by Boston on Saturday and was released from the roster on Monday before being granted his unconditional release on Wednesday.

Plawecki is batting .217 on the season, but he had slashed .275/.310/.350 over his past 30 games with the Red Sox before being DFA’d.
