Oy, that hurts: Rangers void Khalil’s contract

NBC Sports has more.

According to the Dallas Morning News’ Evan Grant, the Rangers have voided shortstop Khalil Greene’s 2010 contract following his failure to report to spring training due to ongoing anxiety issues.

It’s a sad story that continues to get sadder.  Greene, now 30, battled the same anxiety disorder last season in St. Louis and hit just .200/.272/.347 with six homers in 170 at-bats for the Cardinals.  He signed a one-year, $500,000 contract with the Rangers this offseason and was hoping to turn his career around in Texas.  But he is still struggling internally with something many of us probably can’t understand and it sure sounds like he will not be playing baseball at all this year.  Craig Calcaterra had more on the whole ordeal Monday.

I can’t say that’s fair to the player, but Greene has been known for his anxiety disorders and I’m hoping the club didn’t have any other option.  Hopefully we’ll hear more later.
