ARLINGTON –– The Texas Rangers have received outfielder Alex Castellanos on a waiver claim from Boston.

The Red Sox acquired Castellanos in a trade with the Los Angeles on Oct. 23. The 27-year-old was designated for assignment Dec. 12 when Boston re-signed free agent Mike Napoli.

Castellanos spent most of last season with Triple-A Albuquerque, hitting .257 with 19 home runs and 61 RBIs. He is a career .171 hitter in the majors in 24 games, all with the Dodgers.

With Monday's move, the Rangers have a full 40-man roster.
