Rangers' Charlie Culberson: Enters for injured Smith

Culberson entered Friday's game in the top of the ninth inning after third baseman Josh Smith was removed with a shoulder injury. Culberson was then removed for pinch hitter Andy Ibanez in the bottom half of the ninth against right-hander Paul Sewald. Smith had started four of the last five games and was emerging as the primary option at the hot corner. If Smith misses time, Culberson will probably start against lefties while Ibanez slots in against righties.

Rangers' Charlie Culberson: Gets another start vs. lefty

Culberson will start at third base and bat ninth Thursday against the Astros. The righty-hitting Culberson will draw into the lineup against a lefty starting pitcher (Framber Valdez), and most of the 33-year-old's starting opportunities moving forward will come almost exclusively against southpaws. After delivering a massive .932 OPS in 144 plate appearances versus lefties in 2021, Culberson has dropped down to a .633 OPS in 32 plate appearances so far in 2022.

Rangers' Charlie Culberson: Drives in three runs

Culberson went 1-for-2 with a double and three RBI in Friday's 9-6 loss to the Angels. The 33-year-old poked an RBI groundout in the second inning before knocking a two-run double in the fourth, both against starter Reid Detmers. Culberson has now collected a hit in each of his three appearances this season. A hot bat could earn him more playing time, but the veteran is still serving in a utility role as of now.

Rangers' Charlie Culberson: Makes first start

Culberson started at third base and went 1-for-2 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 12-6 win over Toronto. With the Rangers facing their first left-handed starter of the season, Culberson made his first start and appearance of the season. He slotted in at the hot corner while primary third sacker Andy Ibanez moved to first base. Culberson was later removed for pinch hitter Nathaniel Lowe against a right-hander in the fifth inning.

Rangers' Charlie Culberson: Contract selected by Texas

Culberson's contract was selected by the Rangers on Thursday. Culbertson appeared in 91 games for the Rangers last year and slashed .243/.296/.381 with five homers, 23 runs, 22 RBI and seven stolen bases. The 32-year-old will serve as a utility option for Texas in 2022 and should see plenty of playing time against left-handed pitchers.

Rangers' Charlie Culberson: Secures roster spot

The Rangers informed Culberson on Sunday that he'll be included on the team's Opening Day roster, independent baseball journalist Jeff Wilson reports. Culberson likely clinched his spot as a utility option off the bench after the Rangers optioned Yonny Hernandez to Triple-A Round Rock and reassigned Matt Carpenter to the minors within the last few days. The 32-year-old Culberson is expected to have a regular spot in the lineup against left-handed pitchers after he supplied a .932 OPS in 144 plate appearances in those matchups in 2021.

Rangers' Charlie Culberson: Closes in on roster spot

Culberson is expected to claim a roster spot after the Rangers optioned Yonny Hernandez to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, Jack Magruder of MLB.com reports. Texas manager Chris Woodward said it wasn't a 100 percent lock that Culberson breaks camp, but he lauded the utility infielder. "We just think with Culby's experience, how he hits left-handed pitching, his versatility, the clubhouse guy, the makeup -- it is a really good fit for us," the manager said. Culberson hit .346 with four homers and a .932 OPS in 144 plate appearances against left-handers with the Rangers last season while playing mostly third base.
