Rangers sign former Rockie reliever as NRI

The Rangers have signed former Colorado Rockie reliever Pedro Strop to a minor league deal.

Strop's agent describes Thad Levine as "relentless" in pursuing Strop, who cleared waivers in September.

He's another Warner Madrigal, a former positional player converted to pitching, who projects as a setup man but who is still very new to pitching.  He missed almost all of last season due to a stress fracture in the tip of his elbow.

Since it is a minor league deal, the 40 man isn't impacted.
