Texas Rangers transactions: Taylor Hearn and Scott Heineman have been optioned to AAA Nashville, the team announced yesterday.

That leaves 28 “active” players on the Rangers roster, though of course, there will be no games played anytime soon, and once there are games being played, the 26 man rosters will likely be expanded to add additional pitchers. Of the 28 “active” players, Brock Burke will spend the season on the injured list, and Willie Calhoun is still recuperating from an injury. I’m not sure if it was necessary to get down to a certain roster limit by yesterday’s originally scheduled Opening Day or not, but in any case, Hearn and Heineman are officially minor leaguers right now.
