The Texas Rangers will send 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff to Triple-A Round Rock, as the club elected to keep left-handed hitting OF Jim Adduci over the veteran. "I have no reason why Kouzmanoff didn't make this team, he did everything he could," manager Ron Washington said Saturday, March 29. "But when you look at the roster, we had to try to give ourselves some flexibility." Kouzmanoff hit .385 in 52 Cactus League spring at-bats with 12 RBI, but the roster is crowded with INFs Donnie Murphy and Joshua Wilson already on the roster. Kouzmanoff has no opt outs in his contract, and will begin in the minors.
