Eli Whiteside has been claimed off waivers again. This time it’s the Rangers who have nabbed the backup catcher. This winter he’s been designated for assignment by the Giants, claimed by the Yankees, signed by the Yankees, designated for assignment by the Yankees, claimed by the Blue Jays, designated for assignment by the Blue Jays and claimed by the Rangers.
Considering Texas already has Geovany Soto and seems to be a possible landing spot for A.J. Pierzynski, this might not be the last time Whiteside changes teams this winter. It’s certainly not the first.
