Alexi Ogando (elbow) has opted against pitching in the Winter.

Ogando pitched just 25 innings for the Rangers this past season due to elbow issues, so this comes as no surprise. The team is hoping that extended rest will pay dividends next season and that Ogando will be healthy enough to hold down a spot in their bullpen.

Rangers' prospect Ronald Guzman was involved in a fatal car crash on Tuesday morning. He reportedly hit and killed a motorcyclist and could face charges.

Guzman was driving at 1 am Tuesday morning when he hit a motorcyclist who was later declared deceased. The 21-year-old will likely face involuntary manslaughter charges (or whatever the D.R.'s equivalent of that is) in the coming days. His status with the Rangers organization could be frayed depending on what details emerge from the situation. Guzman is well off the fantasy radar, having hit just .218 with six home runs in the SALLY (Low-A) in 2014.

Ross Wolf signed a minor league contract with the Rangers with an invite to spring training.

Ross appeared in 22 games for Texas in 2013 and will now return to the team on a minor league deal. It's unlikely that he will make the club out of spring training and will probably serve as organizational depth in the minor leagues for Texas.

Lucas Harrell and outfielder Jim Adduci both agreed to one-year deals Tuesday in the Korea Baseball Organization.

Adduci hit .168 over 44 games for the Rangers last season and the one year deal with Korea will likely allow him to land an every day role to earn a major league contract in 2016.

Yu Darvish had a MRI and exam on his right shoulder on Tuesday and has been cleared to begin throwing on his normal schedule in early December.

Darvish missed basically the last two months of the season with an elbow issue. It is a great sign that he has been cleared to resume throwing because he should be ready for the regular season. He finished last season with a 10-7 record and a 3.06 ERA with 182 strikeouts in 144.2 innings pitched.

Yu Darvish is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam this week and if the results are good, he's expected to begin his normal throwing program next month.

The MRI was originally scheduled for last week but was pushed back to this week. The Rangers fully expect the MRI to come back clean. Darvish's season ended early due to elbow inflammation, but he's expected to be cleared to off-season work next week assuming the MRI reveals no issues.

Rangers sign INF Ed Lucas to minor-league deal with invite to spring training.

Lucas is a career utility player with a .255 career average and .302 on-base percentage. His glove is definitely better than his bat, but should he stay with the Rangers, Arlington could be a nice place for him to hit.

Rangers sell RHP Miles Mikolas and LHP Aaron Poreda to team in Japan.

The Rangers are probably happy to sell Mikolas after the 6.44 ERA he posted last season. Nevertheless, these moves clear two spots on Texas' 40-man roster.

Rangers designate Jim Adduci for assignment.

The Rangers need to make room on their 40-man roster and Adduci got the axe. He should be able to find himself a minor league deal with an invite to spring training.

Rangers add C Jorge Alfaro, IF Hanser Alberto and P Jerad Eickoff and P Luke Jackson to major league roster.

Alfaro is one of the top prospects in the Rangers' minor league system so it is no surprise that he was added to their 40-man roster. Eickoff and Jackson are now protected and will provide the Rangers will depth at the minor league level.
