      Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Clears waivers

      Hyun-jong Yang cleared waivers Saturday and was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock.No team claimed the lefty pitcher after he was designed for assignment Thursday. Despite his struggles, which are highlighted by a 5.59 ERA in 29 innings with a 19:15 K:BB ratio, Yang may find himself back in the Texas Rangers' depth-deprived rotation or bullpen at some point this season.

      Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Designated for assignment

      Hyun-jong Yang was designated for assignment by the Texas Rangers on Thursday.Yang has made four starts and four relief appearances since joining the Rangers on a minor-league deal over the winter. He hasn't particularly impressed, struggling to a 5.59 ERA in 29 innings while combining a 15.0 percent strikeout rate with an 11.8 percent walk rate. Given those numbers and the fact that the rest of the league passed up the chance to give him a major-league contract during the offseason, it's unlikely the 33-year-old gets claimed off waivers.

      Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Dispatched to minors

      The Texas Rangers optioned Hyun-jong Yang to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.Texas dropped Yang from the bullpen and the 26-man active roster to clear room for closer Ian Kennedy (hamstring), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Since shifting from the rotation to a relief role earlier this month, Yang made only one appearance and gave up two earned runs over 1.1 innings. Texas will likely have Yang get stretched back out for starting duty at Triple-A.

      Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Shifting to bullpen

      Hyun-jong Yang has been removed from the starting rotation and will be a reliever going forward, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.The lefty's four starts this season have been short and mostly ineffective, and he holds a 5.20 ERA in seven total appearances. Yang will need to drastically improve upon his 1.46 K/BB % if he's to be a viable relief option. Kolby Allard, replacing Yang in the rotation, will start Saturday, likely making Friday a bullpen game for the Texas Rangers.

      Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Takes loss in short start

      Hyun-jong Yang (0-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk over three innings Sunday, striking out two and taking the loss against Seattle.Yang gave up an RBI double to Ty France in the first inning and then a two-run single to France in the third. The 33-year-old southpaw saw his ERA rise to 5.53 as he took his third straight loss. He's pitched fewer than five innings in six of his seven outings this season and he's still searching for his first career win. Yang is lined up to face the Rays at home next weekend.

      Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Shelled by Angels

      Hyun-jong Yang (0-2) took the loss against the Angels on Tuesday, pitching 3.1 innings and allowing seven runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two.The outing started off ominously for Yang, as he gave up a leadoff homer to Justin Upton. The left-hander then served up a two-run shot to Jared Walsh in the second inning before completely unraveling in the fourth frame, during which he allowed the first four batters to reach base and managed to secure only one out. The seven earned runs were more than Yang had allowed over his previous four outings combined and pushed his ERA up to 5.47 on the season. He's not guaranteed to get another start, but if he does, it could come against Seattle on Sunday.

      Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Likely to stick in rotation

      Hyun-jong Yang is expected to get at least one more turn in the Texas Rangers' rotation, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.Yang was very much an afterthought heading into the season, as he failed to make the Rangers' Opening Day roster after signing a minor-league contract coming off a down season in Korea. After holding the Yankees to just two runs in 5.1 innings Wednesday, though, he now owns a 3.38 ERA through 21.1 major-league innings. There's been a fair portion of good luck involved, as seen in his .220 BABIP and 81.7 percent strand rate, so it's likely his ERA will rise significantly going forward. Both his 17.4 percent strikeout rate and his 10.5 percent walk rate are worse than league average, but the standards for being one of the Rangers' top five starters aren't particularly high, so there's a chance he sticks around as a fifth starter.

      Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Suffers loss Wednesday

      Hyun-jong Yang (0-1) allowed two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out two over 5.1 innings as he was charged with a loss against the Yankees on Wednesday.Yang held the Yankees scoreless for the first five innings largely due to three double-play balls that got him out of potential trouble. The 33-year-old couldn't make it out of the sixth after he allowed two runs on a triple, two walks and a sacrifice fly before being taken out of the game. Yang has split his time between the bullpen and rotation so far this season while posting a 3.38 ERA and a 15:9 K:BB over 21.1 innings. It's unclear whether manager Chris Woodward plans to give him another start or move him back to the bullpen.

      Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Could start Wednesday

      Hyun-jong Yang is expected to be the Texas Rangers' primary pitcher Wednesday against the Yankees, though whether he starts or follows an opener remains to be seen, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.Yang didn't make much of a splash this winter, joining the Rangers on a minor-league deal following a down season in Korea and failing to win an Opening Day roster spot. He was called up in late April and has been competent when called upon, posting a 3.38 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 16 innings of work, though a .222 BABIP and 87.0 percent strand rate suggest he's gotten a bit lucky. His 4.88 FIP and 4.70 xFIP indicate he's probably a back-end starter at best, though that could be good enough for a regular role on a Rangers team that lacks established talent in the rotation.
