The Texas Rangers have claimed pitcher Art Warren on waivers from the Seattle Mariners, it was announced today.

Warren, 27, was a 23rd round draft pick of the Mariners out of Ashland University in Ohio in 2015. Warren was brought up to the majors in September, 2019, after having spent the year with the AA Arkansas Travelers, where he put up a 1.71 ERA in 31.2 IP over 29 games, with 41 Ks against 13 walks.

Warren did not allow a run in 6 games in the majors for the M’s in September, 2019, spread over 5.1 IP. He was part of the 60 man pool for the Mariners this summer, and was briefly on the active roster, though he didn’t appear in any games.

Warren is a fastball/slider guy who averaged 95.1 mph on his fastballs in his limited action in 2019. He has two options remaining, which is good. He also could end up landing on the waiver wire later on in the offseason if and when the Rangers need another 40 man roster spot freed up.
