MLB Trade Rumors: The Texas Rangers have acquired right handed relief pitcher Jake Petricka from the Mikwaukee Brewers for a player to be named later or cash considerations, the team announced. Petricka, 31, is not on the 40 man roster, and will be assigned to Nashville.

Petricka has a career 3.96 ERA and 4.02 FIP in 228 career relief appearances in the majors. The cash or player involved is likely to be nominal, and this gives the Rangers some veteran bullpen insurance.
