Rangers' Matt Bush: Hits DL with elbow strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a right elbow strain, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Bush appears to have suffered the injury during Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, during which he faced just one batter before coming out of the game. An exact timetable has yet to be established but there should be a better gauge on his status in the coming days.

Rangers' Matt Bush: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

Bush was sent down earlier in the year despite a respectable 3.97 ERA. His 11:9 K:BB and 6.14 FIP indicated that all was not well, however. He seemed to get back on track with Round Rock, posting a 2.00 ERA and a 14:4 K:BB in nine innings. In a corresponding move, Kevin Jepsen was designated for assignment.

Rangers' Matt Bush: Shipped off to Round Rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

This is by no means a reflection of Bush's performance this season, as he holds a 3.97 ERA on the season. However, he's likely unavailable for a few days after pitching in four straight games, so he'll get the boot from the active roster. His demotion will clear a spot for Doug Fister, who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Matt Bush: Throws scoreless inning Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush allowed one hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning of relief in Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Astros.

Bush was one of five relievers to shut down the powerful Houston lineup over the final five innings, enabling the Rangers' first come-from-behind victory of the season. It was also their first one-run win. He had been a starter candidate during spring training but was challenged by the transition from relief. He's made eight appearances thus far, with only two of them clean. Over 8.2 innings, Bush has allowed three runs on six walks and five hits.

Rangers' Matt Bush: Not in closer mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush, whose bid for the starting rotation ended Sunday when manager Jeff Banister announced he will pitch out of the bullpen, will be used as a "bridge" reliever, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Bush had been the Rangers' closer for a bit last year, but Banister specifically projected him as a middle-innings guy who can carry a lead through an inning or more. He converted all nine of his hold chances last season after moving out of the closer's role. With Bush no longer considered for a starting role, Bartolo Colon's chances of sticking with the team increase.
