Texas Rangers option Martin, Hernandez, Jurado, receive Gose

The Rangers made their first round of cuts today, and got a player lost in the Rule 5 draft back

MLB: Texas Rangers-Media Day Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers optioned pitchers Brett Martin, Ariel Jurado and Jonathan Hernandez to the minors today as part of the team's first round of cuts. Also being sent to the minor league camp were non-roster invitees Jeffrey Springs, Andy Ibanez and Jose Cardona.

None of these moves are surprising — all six players were getting a look in camp but weren't considered legitimate candidates to make the Opening Day roster. Per John Blake, there are 62 players still in the major league camp.

The 27 year old Gose was originally an outfielder, but moved to the mound last season. Texas is planning on continuing to work with him as a pitcher going forward.
