Yang allowed two runs on five hits and struck out one over 4.1 innings in Monday's 9-4 loss to the Angels.

Yang's contract was purchased by the Rangers on Monday, and he was put to work immediately when starter Jordan Lyles was bounced after just 2.2 innings. The timing of the transaction was fortuitous; the 33-year-old lefty was added because the bullpen had pitched a lot of innings over the weekend, and the Rangers just began a stretch of 19 consecutive days with a game. A starter in Korea, where he played for 14 seasons, Yang is expected to serve in a low-leverage role.
