Wagner cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, the Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant reports.
The Rangers now have 38 players on the 40-man roster, which gives them some flexibility for upcoming moves. Wagner has a 7.71 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 8:8 K:BB in 14 innings at Triple-A this year.
Wagner was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
Wagner hasn't necessarily impressed this spring, allowing six runs on 13 hits across eight innings. He pitched well in the majors and minors in 2016, but an undisclosed injury shut his season down early and eventually led to him being subjected to waivers. He'll head back to Triple-A in 2017, where the 25-year-old will look to work his way back to the big leagues.
Wagner (undisclosed) gave up two runs over two innings Monday against the Indians.
In those two innings, Wagner was pegged with four hits and a walk. While this wasn't an ideal outing for him, Wagner should improve moving forward. During his time in the minors, Wagner has repeatedly shown the ability to shut down batters and limit runs. Over five games (26.2 innings) at Triple-A Reno in 2016, he allowed just nine runs, giving him a 3.04 ERA in that time.
Wagner (undisclosed) was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Friday.
Wagner pitched well both in the majors and minors in 2016, but his season was cut short in May due to an undisclosed injury. The Rangers decided to take a chance on the righty, as he can either pitch as a starter or out of the bullpen. He'll likely compete for a back-end rotation spot during spring training if he's healthy.
Wagner was placed on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Reno on Sunday.
It's not clear what's ailing Wagner, who most recently started Friday, tossing five innings and surrendering two runs. The 25-year-old owns a 3.04 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 26.2 innings at Reno this season.
Wagner was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday.
Wagner pitched well during his brief stint with the Diamondbacks, posting a 2.70 ERA including a win over 10 innings of work. He'll be a likely candidate for another recall if the Diamondbacks need a fresh arm down the road.
Wagner pitched five shutout innings and earned his first career MLB win Thursday against the Giants.
Entering in relief of an erratic Shelby Miller in the third inning, Wagner gave up just two hits over his five frames. For now, Wagner figures to be a middle innings reliever, but if he continues to perform well in long appearances, he could be considered for spot starts if the need ever presented itself.
Wagner was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Monday, taking the roster spot of Socrates Brito.
Wagner, who was acquired from Milwaukee in an offseason trade, spent most of 2015 in Double-A, where he went 11-5 with a 2.25 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. He had a brief stint with the Brewers and struggled mightily, allowing 11 earned runs over just 13.2 innings. Expect him to pitch in low-leverage situations for the time being.
Wagner was optioned to Triple-A on Monday.
Wagner has not yet pitched at the Triple-A level, as he spent most of 2015 at Double-A within the Brewers organization before a brief, three-start cup of coffee in the big leagues. During that stint, Wagner allowed 11 earned runs over just 13.2 innings, so the Diamondbacks won't be in a hurry to rush him back to the majors after acquiring him via trade back in January.
Wagner was traded to the Diamondbacks on Saturday in a five-player deal, ESPN's Keith Law reports.
While he has not yet been converted to a relief role, that seems inevitable for the 6-foot-3 righty. His minor league numbers are pretty impressive, but the stats don't match the scouting report, as Wagner has never been a prospect of note. Despite making three forgettable starts for the Brewers last year, he has not pitched at Triple-A yet, so that will likely be where Arizona assigns him at the start of the season.
Brewers starter Tyler Wagner threw six innings Saturday, allowing one earned run on seven hits and two walks while striking out three in a 1-0 loss to the Cubs.
The outing was Wagner's first major league quality start, receiving a no-decision despite holding the Cubs to just one run. Wagner was perhaps rushed to the majors, being called up from Double-A Biloxi to make two ineffective spot starts earlier in the season. The 24-year-old would likely benefit from further development in the minors before receiving additional major league starts.
