Sullivan: Woods clears waivers, four are fighting for two bullpen spots

Coty Woods - USA TODAY Sports

Per T.R. Sullivan, Rule 5 selection Coty Woods has cleared waivers, and four pitchers are fighting for the last two spots in the bullpen

T.R. Sullivan has a blog post up that details the latest roster movements.

Aside from the utility infielder and 5th starter spots that have their own posts, Sullivan writes that the bullpen situation is starting to clear up.

Rule 5 selection Coty Woods has cleared waivers, which means that the Rangers can try to work out a deal with the Rockies to keep Woods without him being on the 25 or 40 man roster. If they can't work out a deal, Woods goes back to Colorado for $25,000.

Nate Robertson has been sent to the minors. With Derek Lowe and Michael Kirkman making the team and going to the bullpen, and Joe Nathan, Jason Frasor and Robbie Ross already having nailed down jobs, that leaves Josh Lindblom, Tanner Scheppers, Cory Burns, and Joe Ortiz battling for the final two spots in the pen.

My guess is that Scheppers and Lindblom end up rounding out the 25 man roster.
