ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Texas Rangers have acquired minor league catcher Nevin Ashley from the New York Mets for cash considerations.

Ashley was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock after the deal announced Wednesday night. The Rangers did not put the 32-year-old Ashley on the 40-man roster.

A sixth-round pick in 2006 by Tampa Bay, Ashley has spent time with five organizations. He saw his only major league action with Milwaukee last year, going 2 for 20 in 12 games.

Ashley spent the 2016 season with Triple-A Las Vegas, batting .240 with five home runs and 28 RBIs in 63 games. He has also had stints in the Cincinnati and Pittsburgh organizations.
