Jon Edwards Purchased

  • P Jon Edwards purchased from AAA
  • P Robbie Ross optioned back to AAA [ Link ]

NOTES: Well, so much for the second go around of Robbie Ross. Back to the pile with him.   In his place is another guy who I’ve never heard of pitching for the Rangers.  It’s very much a theme this season.


Robbie Ross Back

  • P Robbie Ross recalled from AAA
  • P Nate Adcock optioned to AAA [ Link ]

NOTES: The way this season has gone, might as well try Robbie Ross again.   Not confident there, though.


Darvish to DL

  • P Yu Darvish placed on 15 day DL
  • P Alex Claudio purchased from AAA [ Link ]

NOTES: Well, it was inevitable.   Darvish is on the DL.  Initial reports are saying “elbow inflammation”.   Not the words I wanted to hear about him.   That phrase in my mind leads to larger problems.  Hope we’re not going there.

This is also the 24th roster move the Rangers have made this season because of the disabled list – a major league record.

As for Alex Claudio, hope the kid comes up and isn’t knocked around, be nice to have a kid come up and do well.  Especially this season.
