Both pitched at the junior college level with Swanson pitching for the national champion Iowa Western while Green was at Indian Hills (Ia.) College. Swanson has been assigned to Class A Spokane while Green will go to the Arizona Rookie League Rangers.

The Rangers are expected to sign fifth-round pick pitcher Wes Chamberlain as soon as he completes his physical. Chamberlain though had Tommy John elbow surgery two months ago.
