Benjamin was named to the Rangers' 60-man player pool Sunday.

Benjamin, who is not on the 40-man roster, is a left-handed starter who has made a steady, if unspectacular, advancement through the minor leagues. The 26-year-old posted a 5.52 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 114:53 K:BB ratio over 135.1 innings (25 starts) at Triple-A Nashville in 2019.
