SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -Sidney Ponson and the Texas Rangers agreed to a minor league contract Sunday.
Ponson last pitched May 12 for the Minnesota Twins, who released him 10 days later. He was 2-5 with a 6.93 ERA in seven starts last season.
The 31-year-old right-hander has won at least 10 games three times in his major league career, including a career-high 17 wins with Baltimore and San Francisco in 2003.
He owns a career mark of 82-101 with a 4.94 ERA in 245 starts over 10 seasons. He split 2006 between the New York Yankees and St. Louis.
The Rangers also added right-hander Doug Mathis to their list of non-roster invitees to spring training. A 13th-round draft pick by Texas three years ago, Mathis was 11-7 with a 3.76 ERA at Double-A Frisco last year.
