Travis Metcalf designated for assignment

To make room for the 6th non-roster player on the 40 man roster, Travis Metcalf has been designated for assignment, along with Eric Hurley and Joaquin Benoit going to the 60 day d.l. (as expected).

Not surprising news vis-a-vis Metcalf, who seemed the obvious choice to drop, given the plethora of utility infielders and the fact that Michael Young is going to be at third base for quite a while going forward.

Metcalf getting DFA'd, rather than simply put on waivers (as Kason Gabbard and Joe Koshansky were), suggests that the Rangers think Metcalf may get claimed, and are possibly trying to work out a trade.

Or maybe not.
