Rangers trade OF Kyle Hudson to Tampa

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- The Texas Rangers traded outfielder Kyle Hudson to Tampa Bay on Saturday for future considerations.

Hudson was in camp with the club, but with Leonys Martin starting at Triple-A Round Rock and the possibility of Julio Borbon starting in the minors as well, there didn't appear to be room for him.

Hudson, 25, hit .296 with 41 stolen bases and 23 RBIs in 119 games with the Baltimore Orioles' High-A, Double-A and Triple-A squads in 2011. He was promoted to the big leagues when rosters expanded in September and was 4-for-28 with two RBIs and two stolen bases in 14 games (started seven in right and one in center).
