The Rangers activated Tyson Ross from the disabled list and designated right-hander Dillon Gee for assignment, the team announced.
Gee, 31, hasn’t pitched well in limited action with the Rangers this season. Over 13 innings, he pitched to a 4.15 ERA and 7.44 FIP.
Ross, on the other hand, will be pitching for the first time since 2016. Texas signed him to a $6 million deal.
Here’s the latest from around the American League West:
- If Ricky Nolasco continue to allow homers the way he has, things won’t end well for the Angels.
- Astros fans have done their part in the All-Star voting, and if that continues, they could have three starters in the mid-summer classic.
- Matt Chapman has joined the Athletics, which is probably a generally good thing for baseball.
- Don’t look now, but things are looking good for the future of the Mariners outfield.
- Texas signed its top three draft picks, a major step for depth purposes.
