Texas Rangers Sign Pitcher

The Texas Rangers have signed Nick Tropeano to a minor league contract. Along with this, they invited him to attend Spring Training with the major league club.

Tropeano spent the 2021 season between the San Francisco Giants and New York Mets. In five appearances, he had a 1-0 record, 2.25 ERA, and two strikeouts. He was first designated for assignment by the Giants in June and claimed off waivers by the Mets. Then, just one month later, he suffered the same fate by the Mets. He later would sign a minor league deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers but did not make the big league club - hence why he became a minor league free agent. 

Tropeano has a decent chunk of experience at the major league level. In 54 appearances over seven seasons between the Houston Astros, Los Angeles Angels, Pittsburgh Pirates, Mets, and Giants, he has a 14-14 record, 4.22 ERA, and 214 strikeouts. He has experience as a starter but has been a reliever at the major league level since the 2019 campaign. 

Tropeano could fight his way to a spot on the Rangers, as he has pitchedtexas  in the majors for multiple years in a row now. We will have to wait and see what comes to fruition.
