The Texas Rangers have announced that relief pitcher R.J. Alvarez has cleared waivers and been outrighted to high-A High Desert.

Alvarez, 25, was claimed on waivers on September 10 from the Chicago Cubs. Alvarez was apparently immediately put back on waivers by the Rangers. In any case, he is now off the 40 man roster and still Ranger property, though he will be subject to the Rule 5 draft this offseason.
