Rangers' Matt Bush: Back with Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (elbow) signed a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to spring training with the Rangers on Monday.

Bush has been with the Rangers for the last three seasons, recording a 3.35 ERA in 137 innings and spending some time as the team's closer in 2017. He underwent surgery to repair a partially torn UCL in September, a procedure that is expected to rule him out for the first half of the season. He'll have a chance to regain a bullpen spot once he recovers, though he'll be 33 years old by the time the season starts and his ERA dipped to 4.70 prior to his injury last season.

Matt Bush: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (elbow) was non-tendered by the Rangers on Friday.

Bush is free to sign elsewhere, although he'll miss at least the first half of the 2019 campaign after undergoing surgery to repair his UCL in mid-September. The 32-year-old made 21 appearances for Texas out of the bullpen prior to suffering the injury, recording a 4.70 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with 19 strikeouts over 23 innings.

Rangers' Matt Bush: Will miss half of 2019 after surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush will miss the first half of the 2019 season after undergoing surgery to repair a partially torn UCL on Wednesday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Bush didn't require Tommy John surgery, so he won't be out quite as long as other pitchers with elbow problems, but he's still expected to miss an extended period, which will come with all the typical questions about his ability to return to his former level. That level wasn't particularly good when he was healthy in 2018, as he recorded a disappointing 4.70 ERA in 23 innings and did not record a single save. He'll have some work to do to if he's to get back into the closer conversation in late 2019.

Rangers' Matt Bush: Plays catch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (elbow) played catch Tuesday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic Dallas reports.

Bush has now missed two full months with a strained elbow. It hasn't yet been ruled out that he'll return this season, but given the nature of the injury and the fact that the Rangers are far out of the playoff race, they'll have little reason to push him.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (elbow) has been cleared to begin throwing, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Bush has been on the disabled list since June 14 because of a strained right elbow. He'll start by playing catch and is not expected to return until September.
