ARLINGTON -- The Rangers have outrighted pitcher Mason Tobin to Triple-A Round Rock.
He was a Rule 5 Draft pick from the Angels last year who underwent Tommy John surgery in April and missed most of the season. He had a 6.75 ERA in four appearances for the Rangers in April before going on the disabled list.
This transaction leaves the Rangers with 31 players on their 40-man roster.
Tobin was offered back to the Angels and they declined the offer. So now he is the Rangers' property and no longer under the jurisdiction of Rule 5 guidelines.
