Dave Bush will be on the 25 man roster

Ron Washington has reportedly announced that Dave Bush has made the Texas Rangers' 25 man roster as the team's long man.

Bush was battling with Brett Tomko for that job, and I would guess that out dates had something to do with this decision.  Tomko has been getting much better reviews in camp, but Bush had an out clause in his contract he was going to exercise today if he wasn't on the 40 man roster, and Tomko's out clause isn't until June 1.

This means that, if we assume Alexi Ogando is the 5th starter, there are two jobs in the bullpen still open, with Mason Tobin and Pedro Strop likely the favorites for those two jobs, and Mark Lowe and Tomko also in the mix.
