Benson, who turns 25 years old in March, only has 71 at-bats at the major-league level, all coming in 2011 with the Twins. He hit .215/.294/.362 with seven home runs, 30 RBI and nine stolen bases in 307 at-bats across three minor-league levels last season.

Rangers put in claim for Joe Benson
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/25/13) The Rangers claimed recently waived outfielder Joe Benson Saturday. He was optioned to Double-A Frisco.

Benson, a former top-100 prospect on Baseball America's lists in 2011 and 2012, has struggled badly since reaching Triple-A Rochester last season. He is hitting just .192 this season and .187 overall in 70 games at the level.
