Rule 5 draft pickup

The Mariners selected Kaneko Texeira in the Rule 5 draft last night.  Judging by the write up on the Mariner site, this could be a steal if it pans out.  Plus, it is always nice to rob the Yankee farm system of some talent.

He did pitch briefly in the majors, going 1-2 with a 2.91 ERA.  The record does not look well, but that ERA is a nice sign.  His minor league stats from this past season at Double-A Trenton are better.  He went 9-6 with a 2.84 ERA.  I am excited to see what he can offer us in the upcoming season.
