Texas Rangers Hook Carp From Sox On Waivers

It didn't take very long for somebody to take a chance on former Red Sox utility man Mike Carp. The Texas Rangers yesterday scooped up Carp on waivers—before the Red Sox had a chance to make any trade arrangements. Carp was fabulous off the bench in 2013 (.296), but got very little playing time this year—resulting in a .198 average in just 42 games. We wish Carp the best of luck.
