Nick Martinez purchased

  • P Nick Martinez purchased from AA Frisco
  • P Daniel McCutchen optioned to AA Frisco [ Link ]
  • C Chris Gimenez cleared waivers, but refused assignment to minors, now a FA

NOTES: The roster move to get our announced fifth starter on the roster was made here.  I think most Ranger fans had a collective scratching of the head when they said that Martinez was to make the club as the fifth starter.  I know I certainly didn’t know much about him.  Jamey Newberg probably did, but I didn’t.

I was wrong about Chris Gimenez.  He’s gone. He refused his assignment to the minors and is a free agent.   He never technically played for the Rangers in 2014, but he WAS on the opening day roster.
