South Kitsap graduate Aaron Cunningham is returning to the American League West, according to the Fort Worth Star Telegram newspaper. Cunningham has been invited to Spring Training by Texas.

Cunningham, 26, hit .175 with one home run in 97 at-bats last season with Cleveland. He was acquired by the Indians last December for pitcher Cory Burns.

In addition to Cleveland and San Diego, Cunningham also has played for Oakland. He has hit .219 in parts of five major-league seasons.

Cunningham originally was drafted in the sixth round in 2005 by the Chicago White Sox and later was traded to Arizona. The Rangers are his sixth professional organization.
