The Texas Rangers have traded righthanded pitcher Deck McGuire to the Anaheim Angels for cash considerations, per John Blake on Twitter.

McGuire was claimed on waivers by the Rangers from the Toronto Blue Jays on June 15, 2018. McGuire pitched once in the Rangers organization, for Round Rock on June 16, and gave up 5 runs in 1.2 innings pitched. He was designated for assignment yesterday to make room on the 40 man roster for Elvis Andrus, who was activated off the 60 day d.l.

I have no idea why the Rangers claimed McGuire only to turn around and DFA him and then trade him just a few days later.
