Rangers' Matt Bush: Steps in for first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush got the call in the ninth inning Wednesday, and he mowed down the Rockies neatly in order with a strikeout for his first career save.

Regular closer Sam Dyson had pitched three of the last four days, as had recently acquired setup man Jeremy Jeffress, while Jake Diekman was called upon in the eighth. That left Bush, who's a pretty darn good fourth option, considering his 2.56 ERA and 34:9 K:BB over 39.2 innings. He'll return to holds duty moving forward, but the 30-year-old has closer potential even if it'll be hard for him to realize it in the Rangers' crowded bullpen.

Rangers' Matt Bush: Impresses in first MLB season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush has allowed two earned runs across 13.1 innings of work this season.

Since making his first appearance of the season on May 13, Bush is 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. His control has been exceptional, and he has a walk rate of just 5.3 percent to show for it. However, he does have room to improve, as left-handed batters are hitting .353 against Bush.

Rangers' Matt Bush: Called up by Rangers on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bush was called up by the Rangers on Friday, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports.

After being out of baseball since 2011 due to some off-field issues, the first overall pick in the 2004 draft (as a shortstop) will finally get the opportunity to make his major league debut. Bush has been electric for Double-A Frisco this season, posting a 2.65 ERA and 0.76 WHIP with 18 strikeouts and five saves in 17 innings with the Rough Riders, but he'll likely slot into more low-leverage situations during his stint with Texas.

Rangers' Matt Bush: Signs minors deal with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matt Bush signed a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers on Friday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2004 draft has been out of baseball since 2011, and he was released from prison in late-October after serving time for a DUI-related incident. While he's only 29 years old, it still seems like a longshot that Bush will ever make an impact at the major-league level.
