TR Sullivan reports that Texas has added Fabio Castillo, Engel Beltre, Miggie de los Santos, and Wilmer Font to the 40 man roster for the purpose of protecting them from selection in the Rule 5 draft. Unfortunately, we also get word the Wilmer Font's elbow problems, which shut him down mid-season, were much worse than we knew. He had TJ surgery on 10/1 so if he pitches at all in game action next year it won't be until instructs or during the AFL.
Texas also announced an additional AAA sign, in addition to the 2 we knew of in Esteban German and Kevin Cash: CF Doug Deeds. All three received invites to spring training.
