ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Free agent right-hander Juan Nicasio has signed a minor league contract with the Texas Rangers. The veteran reliever will go to spring training as a non-roster invitee. Nicasio has played for six big league teams in his nine major league seasons. He made 47 appearances last year for Philadelphia, but also missed time because of a left groin strain and right shoulder tendinitis. The Rangers also Wednesday assigned left-hander Kyle Bird outright to Triple-A Nashville. He had been designated for assignment a week earlier, and will also go to spring training as a non-roster player.
