Herget signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Rangers on Friday.
Herget was non-tendered by the Rangers in early December, but he'll return to the team on a split major-league contract. The right-hander made 20 appearances last year, posting a 3.20 ERA and 1.37 WHIP over 19.2 innings. Herget should resume his role as a lower-leverage reliever in 2021.
Herget was non-tendered by the Rangers on Wednesday.
He had a 3.20 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 17:14 K:BB in 19.2 innings (20 appearances) last season. Still just 27, Herget should be able to latch on elsewhere on a big-league deal, assuming he is healthy.
Herget (1-0) allowed one run on one hit while striking out a batter through an inning of work Saturday as he earned the win against the Astros.
Herget replaced Kyle Gibson in the seventh and quickly gave up a double to Aledmys Diaz to begin the inning. The Astros were able to plate him on two sacrifices before Herget struck out Myles Straw to end the inning. The right-hander has a solid 3.20 ERA, but his 17:14 K:BB across 19.2 innings is a bit concerning as he appears to have some trouble locating his pitches.
Herget will serve as the opener for Friday's game against the Angels.
Herget will likely be tasked with handling the first inning or so in this one, considering he hasn't pitched more than two frames this season. Wes Benjamin is in line to pitch the bulk of Friday's innings.
Herget was recalled from the alternate training site Wednesday.
The 26-year-old was optioned to the alternate site Tuesday, but he'll make a quick return to the active roster with Nick Goody (back) heading to the injured list. Herget has appeared in five games this season, allowing five runs on five hits with a 4:6 K:BB over 4.1 innings.
Herget was optioned to the Rangers' alternate training site Tuesday.
Herget was inconsistent in relief after his contract was selected by the Rangers at the end of July, and he'll be removed from the 28-man roster after allowing three runs on three hits and two walks while recording just two outs Monday. Given his lack of results at the major-league level, it's unclear whether he'll return to the big leagues during the abbreviated 2020 season.
Herget will have his contract purchased by the Rangers, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Jose Leclerc (shoulder) was placed on the 45-day injured list Thursday, opening up a spot on the big-league roster for Herget. The right-hander made five appearances for the Reds in 2019, allowing three runs on eight hits and three walks across 6.1 innings. He should fill a low-leverage relief role during his time with the big club.
Herget was added to the Rangers' 60-man player pool Sunday.
Herget, who is not on the 40-man roster, made his MLB debut last season, when he appeared in three games for the Reds. The 26-year-old right-hander was designated for assignment twice during the offseason -- first by the Reds, then by the Rangers -- and eventually signed with Texas. His major-league experience, no matter how slight, helped him become part of the pool.
Herget cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.
The 26-year-old was designated for assignment twice following the end of the 2019 season, but he cleared waivers this time around and was assigned outright to Triple-A Nashville. The right-hander made his major-league debut last season, posting a 4.26 ERA over 6.1 innings for the Reds.
Herget was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Saturday.
Herget finds himself removed from a 40-man roster for the second time in less than a month, as he faced the same fate with the Reds back in late November. This time around, the transaction makes room for Adolis Garcia, acquired in a trade with the Cardinals in a corresponding move.
Herget was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Monday.
Herget made his major-league debut last season, pitching 6.1 innings for the Reds. He did not strike out a single batter, quite a surprise given his strong 27.1 percent strikeout rate in 58.2 innings for Triple-A Louisville. He'll compete for a bullpen spot in camp.
Herget was designated for assignment by the Reds on Monday.
Herget will clear a space on the 40-man roster for Justin Shafer, acquired from the Blue Jays in a corresponding move. Herget posted a respectable 4.26 ERA in his 6.1 inning big-league debut last season, though he didn't strike out a single one of the 26 batters he faced.
Herget was recalled by the Reds on Sunday.
Herget made the first three big-league appearances of his career back in July, allowing three runs in 3.2 innings of work. He recorded a 2.91 ERA in 58.2 innings for Triple-A Louisville this season, though that came with a worryingly high 14.3 percent walk rate and a good but not great 27.1 percent strikeout rate.
Herget was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Herget had been up since the start of July but was called on just three times, allowing three runs in 3.2 innings. He did not strike out a single batter.

Hergert was added to the 40-man roster in November and is set for his major-league debut after posting a 3.58 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 44:24 K:BB over 37.2 innings at Louisville. The 25-year-old figures to fill a low-leverage bullpen role for the Reds.
Herget joined Cincinnati's 40-man roster Tuesday.
Herget was shifted to the Reds' 40-man roster for Rule 5 protection. The 25-year-old has served as strictly a reliever through four seasons of minor-league ball, making him one of the least relevant fantasy prospects shielded.
