Around Major League Baseball

The Rangers have reportedly signed pitcher Doug Fister to a one-year deal.

This Date in Mets History

The Mets completed their trade for a manger on this date in 1967. They sent pitcher Bill Denehy and cash to the Washington Senators to finish the deal for Gil Hodges.
