Rangers claim Alex Castellanos

Just like that, Alex Castellanos is gone.

The Rangers claimed the 27-year-old outfielder off of waivers Monday. The move comes about a week and a half after the Red Sox designated him for assignment when they re-added Mike Napoli to the 40-man roster.

Castellanos' stay in the system was a short one. The Sox acquired him from the Dodgers in exchange for outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker in October, so he never played a game in the Sox system.

Castellanos hit .257 with a .347 OBP and .468 slugging mark in Triple-A this year, and he owns a .171/.186/.390 slash line in 24 major league games with the Dodgers the last two years.
