The Rangers added Nicasio (back) to their 60-man roster pool Thursday.

Nicasio and Edinson Volquez both joined the 60-man pool, bringing the Rangers' total to 57 men. The 33-year-old made just two spring appearances before experiencing back tightness in early March. Nicasio recorded a 4.75 ERA, 1.65 WHIP, and 45:21 K:BB across 47.1 relief innings with the Phillies in 2019. As a non-roster invitee, he's not expected to have a spot in the Texas bullpen come Opening Day.
