The Rangers have claimed infielder Ed Lucas on a waiver claim from the Marlins, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Lucas, 32, was a career minor leaguer until getting the call up to the show in 2013. In 573 big league plate appearances, Lucas hasn’t done a whole lot, hitting .255/.302/.323 with five home runs and 37 RBI. However, Lucas is versatile, having played all four infield positions as well as in the outfield corners to a lesser extent. He will wear many hats, serving as a utility guy for the Rangers.
