Jason Bahr to Frisco, Curtis Terry to Down East

The Texas Rangers have announced a pair of minor league promotions today, with starting pitcher Jason Bahr moving from high-A Down East to AA Frisco, and first baseman Curtis Terry going from low-A Hickory to Down East.

Bahr, 24, is a righthander who was acquired as the bribe from the San Francisco Giants last summer in order for the Rangers to take the contracts of outfielder Austin Jackson and pitcher Cory Gearrin. He has a 1.71 ERA in 58 IP, with 58 Ks and 26 walks against 2 home runs. He is, like Tyler Phillips, who moved from Down East to Frisco earlier this year, getting the opportunity to be challenged by more advanced hitters and figure out what adjustments he needs to make to succeed at the higher level.

Terry, 22, is a righthanded hitting first baseman who was a 13th round pick of the Rangers in 2015. He mashed for Spokane in 2018, with a 1040 OPS, and has a .263/.328/.560 slash line for Hickory this year. Tyreque Reed, who is on a rehab assignment with the AZL Rangers right now, has been the first baseman for Down East most of this season, and the catchers for Down East (including Sam Huff) have generally been rotating through the DH spots. It remains to be seen whether Reed will go to Hickory once his rehab is up, be returned to Down East to share time at 1B/DH with Terry and the catchers, or whether there will be another solution. (UPDATE — Per Scott Lucas, Reed has been assigned to Hickory.)
