Rangers looking to the (recent) past

Kevin Mench remains unemployed, but maybe not for long.

The former Texas Ranger with the nickname Shrek could be making a return trip to Arlington. Texas traded Mench and closer Francisco Cordero to Milwaukee in 2006.

Mench would be in the mix as a backup outfielder and apparently is entertaining the same type of offer from the New York Yankees.

The personable Mench was a fan favorite in the Metroplex for his work on and off the field. He was a stand-up person in the locker room and a big reason the clubhouse was one of the loosest in the league.

With what's left on the free-agent market, the Rangers could do a lot worse than brining back Mench.
