    The Texas Rangers have added a minor league affiliate owned by new managing partner Chuck Greenberg.

    The Rangers said Friday the Myrtle Beach Pelicans will be their high Class A team. It will be their first Carolina League team since 1986.

    Texas will play an exhibition game in Myrtle Beach on March 29 against an opponent to be determined.

    Greenberg led a group that bought the Myrtle Beach franchise in 2006. He and Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan headed a group that bought the Rangers last month.

    The Rangers are moving their Triple-A team to Round Rock after 28 years in Oklahoma City. Round Rock is owned by Ryan, who is president of the Rangers.
