The Texas Rangers are taking a chance on Tommy Hanson.
According to MLB.com, the Rangers and Hanson agreed to a minor league contract with an invite to Spring Training, pending a physical.
The deal is worth $2 million plus incentives according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.
Hanson, 27, went 4-3 with a 5.42 earned-run average and a 1.55 WHIP in 15 appearances with the Los Angeles Angels in 2013.
A veteran of five MLB seasons, Hanson has posted a 49-35 career record between the Angels and Atlanta Braves. He possesses a 3.80 career ERA and a 1.28 career WHIP, striking out an average of 8.2 batters per nine innings.
The Rangers will need at least short-term help in their starting rotation, with lefty Derek Holland having undergone surgery on his left knee in January.
