Watch a chicken play baseball

Really, that’s all this is. A chicken playing baseball. Found by the folks over at MLB.com’s CUT 4. It’s quite a thing.

The best part: he hits better than B.J. Upton. And, because he was conditioned to play the game by being rewarded with chicken feed, he costs far less than B.J. Upton does too.

Rangers sign Chris Martin to a two-year deal

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Texas Rangers have signed free agent righty Chris Martin to two-year, $4 million deal.

Martin pitched for the Nippon Ham Fighters for the past two seasons, posting 1.12 ERA in 88 relief innings with excellent strikeout and walk rates. Martin pitched 40 games in the bigs, appearing with the Rockies in 2014 and the Yankees in 2015 with some pretty underwhelming results.

He’s tall — 6’8″ — and tall guys sometimes take a long time to put it all together. Maybe he finally put it all together. The Rangers obviously think he has.
