The Texas Rangers announced today that righthanded pitcher Reed Garrett, who was taken in the Rule 5 Draft from the Rangers by the Detroit Tigers, and then was designated for assignment last week by the Tigers, has cleared waivers and been returned to the Rangers’ organization. Garrett is not on the 40 man roster, and is being assigned to Nashville, where he will work out of the bullpen.

In addition, outfielder Scott Heineman, who has been in Arizona playing in extended spring training games while returning from offseason shoulder surgery, will start a rehab assignment with Nashville on Tuesday, May 21. Heineman is on the 60 day injured list, so when his rehab assignment is up — he can spend up to 20 days on a rehab assignment — he will have to be activated and optioned, which will necessitate the Rangers having to open up a 40 man roster spot.
