Rangers get Double-A RHP Grimm to start vs. Astros
The Texas Rangers purchased the contract of right-hander Justin
Grimm from Double-A Frisco on Saturday so he could make his major
league debut in a start that night against Houston.
To make room on the 25-man roster, the Rangers optioned
right-hander Yoshinori Tateyama to Triple-A Round Rock.
The Rangers transferred Neftali Feliz (sprained right elbow)
from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL to make room on the
40-man roster. The earliest the hard-throwing starter will be able
to return is July 18, though he was not expected back before
Grimm was 8-3 with a 1.87 ERA in 13 starts for Frisco. He had 67
strikeouts and 14 walks in 77 innings.
