Sampson will take Bartolo Colon's place in the rotation, beginning with Tuesday's game against the Angels, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

The Rangers will elect to give starts to a pitcher who could be part of their future rather than the 45-year-old Colon. Sampson allowed a pair of runs while getting just one out in his only big-league appearance of the season, though he posted a solid 3.77 ERA in 126.2 innings with Triple-A Round Rock.
