De Geus struck out one over a scoreless inning in Saturday's 7-4 loss to San Diego.
De Geus has worked three scoreless outings after getting knocked around in his MLB debut Opening Day when he ceded three runs on one hit, two walks and two hit batsmen. Since then, it's been goose eggs over 4.2 innings for the right-hander. While all of de Geus' appearances have come in the final third of games, none of them have been high leverage. That was to be expected given the 23-year-old was a Rule 5 draft pick during the offseason and is not likely to be counted on for important relief work.
De Geus has been informed that he'll make the Rangers' Opening Day roster, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
De Geus was a Rule 5 draft pick from the Dodgers and will begin the regular season in a low-leverage role in the major-league bullpen. The right-hander posted a 4.05 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 6.2 innings this spring as he prepares for his big-league debut.
De Geus (illness) struck out two over a scoreless inning in Sunday's spring game against Cleveland.
De Geus, a Rule 5 draft pick from the Dodgers, was removed from his previous Cactus League appearance with intestinal distress. The 23-year-old has allowed one run on two hits and one walk while striking out five over five spring innings.
De Geus left Saturday's spring game against the Brewers early due to intestinal distress, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
De Geus was brought in during the final inning of Saturday's spring game but left the game after recording just two outs. The game ended since the Rangers didn't have any more pitchers to use Saturday, but it's unlikely that de Geus will be forced to miss extended time following his early departure.
The Rangers selected de Geus with the second pick of the Rule 5 draft.
The 6-foot-2 righty logged a 1.79 ERA with eight saves in 39 games in the Dodgers organization in 2019. He has never pitched above High-A, but as a reliever, he could theoretically hold his own out of the Rangers' bullpen in 2021. De Geus spent the 2020 season at the Dodgers' alternate site.
