The Rangers designated Font (elbow) for assignment Thursday.
With Alfredo Figaro coming aboard via a waiver claim from Milwaukee, the Ranger went ahead and bumped Font to make room on the 40-man roster. Font underwent surgery in mid-August to remove a bone spur from his elbow, after posting a 3.48 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 9.0 K/9 in 29 appearances with Double-A Frisco. The right-hander is still just 24 years old, and figures to draw at least some interest while on waivers.
