Pete Kozma: Released by Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers released Kozma on Sunday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Texas recently added two versatile infielders via waiver claims in Phil Gosselin and Tyler Smith, and with Jurickson Profar also lingering at Triple-A Round Rock, Kozma was likely no better than fourth in the organizational pecking order for a utility role with the big club. As such, the Rangers decided to part ways with the 29-year-old, who had gone 5-for-45 (.111 average) in the majors this season before he was outrighted to Round Rock on July 23.

Rangers' Pete Kozma: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kozma cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock.

Kozma was designated for assignment just a few days ago, but his lack of hitting at the big-league level deterred the other clubs in the league from plucking him off waivers. He'll remain in the Rangers organization as an organizational depth piece moving forward.

Rangers' Pete Kozma: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kozma was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Thursday.

Kozma was just 4-for-36 with 18 strikeouts at the plate since coming to the Rangers in late April. The infielder was cast off by the club due to the return of Keone Kela (shoulder) from the disabled list prior to Thursday's contest with Baltimore. Although Kozma's versatility was an immense positive during his time in Texas, his lack of hitting eventually became too much of a burden.

Rangers' Pete Kozma: Strikes out three times in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kozma went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's 11-4 loss to the Red Sox.

Kozma picked up his second start in three games with manager jeff Banister choosing to rest several key lefty hitters with southpaw David Price on the hill for the opposition. The 29-year-old did little Tuesday to stake a claim to a larger role and is batting just .119 while striking out in 19 of his 48 plate appearances (39.6 percent) this season. He remains on the roster for no other reason than his sound glove and ability to play multiple infield spots.

Rangers' Pete Kozma: Utility infielder striking out far too often
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kozma is hitting .158 in 23 plate appearances since being claimed off waivers by the Rangers in late April.

The long-time Cardinal is serving in a utility role this season, playing anywhere along the infield besides first. He's only been given a starting nod four times with the Rangers, and the lack of consistent playing time has taken it's toll on the 29-year-old. He's struck out 10 times in a Texas uniform, doubling the amount of times he's got on base. Between the poor numbers and the lack of playing time, any fantasy value Kozma retains this season is minimal at best.
