Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Rangers have signed reliever Rafael Perez to a minor league contract. The deal includes an invite to major league spring training. Perez turns 32 years old in May and hasn't appeared in the majors since left shoulder surgery in September of 2012. He pitched in the minors with the Twins and Red Sox last year, posting a 2.60 ERA and 32/8 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A.
