Delcarmen signs minor league deal with Rangers

Right-handed reliever Manny Delcarmen has signed a minor league
contract with the Texas Rangers.

Delcarmen was assigned Thursday to Triple-A Round Rock.

The 29-year-old Delcarmen was 2-2 with a 5.14 ERA in 18 games
for Triple-A Tacoma in the Seattle organization. He went to spring
training on a minor league contract, which included a clause that
allowed him to ask for his release. The Mariners granted that this
week.

Delcarmen was 11-6 with a 3.89 ERA and three saves in 289 relief
appearances for Boston from 2005-10.

The Rangers also said Thursday that right-hander Mason Tobin had
Tommy John surgery.
