Rangers' Adrian Sampson: Set for promotion
Sampson got his first taste of big-league action back in 2016 for the Mariners, making a single, unimpressive start. He was injured soon after that start, requiring elbow surgery, and he made just eight minor-league starts the following season. This year for Triple-A Round Rock, he had a solid 3.77 ERA in 126.2 innings, with a low 4.5 percent walk rate making up for a weak 15.8 percent strikeout rate. He looks to be a low-leverage relief arm for the Rangers down the stretch, unless the team decides to give him a start or two.
