Scott Heineman (OF) TEX - Dec. 03

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=761894

Heineman signed a one-year, $595,000 contract with the Rangers on Thursday.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Heineman was non-tendered by Texas on Wednesday, but he'll come to an agreement on a major-league deal with his former team just one day later. Despite his new contract, he isn't guaranteed to see significant playing time after hitting .189 during 49 games across the past two seasons.

It's been the rule in softball for many years. We just called it the designated runner; way shorthand, and maybe not completely accurate, but in context might be clear enough.

He charged the single to center in the bottom of the tenth hard, so hard the third base coach puts the stop sign on Wil Meyer, the last-out-in-the-ninth-inning baserunner. But Heineman bobbles the ball and that's the ballgame.

If you were just tuning into baseball, having spent the previous six months in a cave, you would ask, "What the heck is a last-out-in-the-ninth-inning baserunner?"

Is there a word for it yet, similar to opener?
