Rangers' Brett Nicholas: Optioned to Triple-A Round Rock
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nicholas was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Nicholas was seeing fairly regular playing time as the backup catcher, making two consecutive starts on Monday and Tuesday and extending his hitting streak to five games. However, with Bobby Wilson returning from Detroit via trade on Tuesday, Nicholas' services were no longer needed at the major league level.

Rangers' Brett Nicholas: Out of the lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brett Nicholas is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Nicholas made three consecutive starts and collected hits in each of the past two; however, the 27-year-old will get the day off in favor of Bryan Holaday. Nicholas is hitting .240 since being called up in mid-April and is pushing Holaday for the starting role.

Rangers' Brett Nicholas: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brett Nicholas ' contract was purchased Sunday from Triple-A Round Rock, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

It's the first call to the big leagues for Nicholas, who is in line to serve as the backup at catcher behind Bryan Holaday after regular starter Robinson Chirinos (forearm) was placed on the 60-day DL and ruled out for 10-to-14 weeks. With the Texas Rangers fancying themselves as contenders this season, it seems likely the team will explore the trade market as a means of adding depth at catcher, and any acquisition would likely result in Nicholas immediately heading back to the minors. The 27-year-old slashed .268/.314./.412 and hit 12 homers over 403 at-bats at Round Rock last season.
