ARLINGTON -- Agent Scott Boras, in town for Ivan Rodriguez's retirement ceremony on Monday, said that left-handed reliever Michael Gonzalez is close to being fully recovered from offseason knee surgery. Gonzalez, who is a free agent, is starting to throw bullpen sessions for interested teams.
"He should sign in the next 10 days," Boras said.
Gonzalez spent the last month of the 2011 season with the Rangers and was on their postseason roster. The Rangers offered the lefty a Minor League contract in Spring Training, but he declined it.
