NEW YORK -- The Rangers have called up pitcher Nate Adcock from Triple-A Round Rock to replace Joakim Soria in the bullpen.

Adcock was 1-0 with a 2.76 ERA in 13 appearances at Round Rock. He was in Rangers camp during Spring Training but started the season on the disabled list after undergoing surgery on his right shoulder for thoracic outlet syndrome.

Adcock appeared in 36 games with the Royals from 2011-12, posting a record of 1-4 and a 3.79 ERA. The Rangers signed him to a Minor League contract in the offseason.

"He has been throwing the ball well," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "He's a sinker/slider guy. He got hurt in Spring Training, but he is a multi-inning option for us."

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Rangers transferred first baseman Mitch Moreland to the 60-day disabled list. Moreland is out for the season after undergoing left ankle surgery.
