Texas Rangers - PlayerWatch
UT Alex Castellanos was designated for assignment by the Rangers on March 5 to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for newly signed LHP Joe Saunders. Castellanos, 27, hit a combined .171 in 24 games for the Dodgers in 2012 and 2013. He was traded by Los Angeles to Boston in October, then was acquired by Texas off waivers in December.
LHP Joe Saunders finalized a one-year, $500,000 contract with the Rangers on March 5. The Rangers were in need of pitching depth with LHPs Derek Holland and Matt Harrison battling injuries, so Saunders, 32, could compete for one of the final spots in the Texas rotation.
