Roster set: The Rangers rounded out their roster by acquiring the contracts of outfielder Adrian Brown and infielder D'Angelo Jimenez. Both had been in camp on Minor League contracts.Outfielder Adam Hyzdu was reassigned to minor league camp. The Rangers kept Jimenez because it allows them to use infielder Mark DeRosa in the outfield if needed. The Rangers also optioned pitcher John Rheinecker to Triple-A Oklahoma. He was acquired Friday from the Oakland Athletics. Briefly: John Wasdin has signed a contract with Triple-A Oklahoma and will pitch in their rotation. ... Jon Leicester is also going into the Oklahoma rotation. He was a reliever in camp but Showalter said, "If we stretch him out, we can bring him back either way." ... Josh Rupe has started throwing again in Spring Training for the first time since coming down with elbow inflammation. He is still a month away. ... Gary Matthews Jr. had a good day hitting back at the Spring Training complex and the Rangers expect him to be ready for a rehab assignment on Thursday at Oklahoma. ... C.J. Wilson threw 21 pitches in a Minor League exhibition game but the reports weren't good. Said Showalter, "His command was a little off. He was out of whack mechanically." ... Pitcher Omar Beltre, still stuck in the Dominican Republic because of a visa problem, was placed on the restricted list.
