Sampson (elbow) was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Wednesday.

He was placed on the 60-day DL and is expected to start 2017 on injury rehab, so this will not cost the Rangers a 40-man spot. Sampson had surgery to reattach the flexor bundle in his elbow in late June. The Rangers' lack of organizational rotation depth is well known, so he will likely continue to be developed as a starter once healthy.
