The Texas Rangers have signed right-hander Zach Simons to a minor league contract, reports Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com:

The Orioles have signed Daniel McCutchen and Dan Meyer to minor league deals, and the Rangers have done the same with Zach Simons, MLBTR's Tim Dierkes has learned.

Simons was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the second round of the 2005 MLB Draft. He spent three and a half seasons in the Rockies’ minor league system before being traded to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for right-hander Jason Grilli.

Simons spent the next two and a half season pitching between the Tigers’ Double- and Triple-A squads before he joined the then Florida Marlins. The 27-year-old went on to rejoin the Rockies for the 2012 season.

While he struggled severely in nine appearances at the Triple-A level, Simons spent most of the year in Double-A where he excelled. Over 33 appearances spanning 46 2/3 innings the right-hander maintained an ERA of 1.93.

Over eight seasons in the minors Simons owns a career ERA of 4.10 with 7.1 strikeouts per nine innings and 4.0 walks per nine innings.
