Rangers Release Pitcher


The Rangers have designated pitcher Spencer Patton for assignment.

The move clears out a 40-man roster spot for Steven Duggar, who was acquired from the Giants for Willie Calhoun. 

The thirty-four year old pitched in seven innings for the Rangers this season, throwing a 3.86 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP with five strikeouts.

In his career at the major league level, Patton holds a 5.11 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 111 strikeouts in 104 innings. 

If he clears waivers, the pitcher should generate some interest from teams around the league looking for some bullpen depth.
