Guillermo Moscoso designated for assignment

New, 59 comments

To make room for Adrian Beltre on their active roster, the Rangers have designated righthanded pitcher Guillermo Moscoso for assignment.

This move was not really unexpected...with Max Ramirez and Clay Rapada designated earlier in the week, Moscoso was the most obvious guy on the 40 man roster to be dropped.

Moscoso came over to the Rangers with Carlos Melo as part of the Gerald Laird trade, and although he had success in the minors and has pretty good stuff, he was never able to translate that to the majors.

He's someone I expect would be claimed, so I am thinking the Rangers are going to try to work out a deal to trade him, rather than lose him for nothing.
