Rangers' Tyler Phillips: Promoted to Triple-A
Phillips was promoted to Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.
Phillips recently returned to the mound after a right elbow injury kept him sidelined for just over two weeks. He allowed six runs on five hits and a walk while failing to record a strikeout in 1.1 innings across his last two appearances, but he'll now be in line to make his Triple-A debut in the near future....

Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Clears waivers
Yang cleared waivers Saturday and was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock.
No team claimed the lefty pitcher after he was designed for assignment Thursday. Despite his struggles, which are highlighted by a 5.59 ERA in 29 innings with a 19:15 K:BB ratio, Yang may find himself back in the Rangers' depth-deprived rotation or bullpen at some point this season....

Rangers' John King: Starting build-up
King will begin building up to pitch longer outings and possibly start games, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The lefty will appear in relief Saturday and will begin pitching on a more regular schedule afterwards. Texas hopes King, who posted a 2.40 ERA in 19 minor-league starts in 2019, can provide some much-needed rotation depth.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Brock Holt: Takes seat Saturday
Holt isn't starting Saturday's game against Minnesota.
Holt will retreat to the bench for the second time in the last three games after he went 1-for-3 with a strikeout Friday. Charlie Culberson will start at third base and bat ninth.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jose Trevino: Not in Saturday's lineup
Trevino isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins.

Rangers' Jason Martin: Remains out of lineup
Martin isn't starting Saturday's game against the Twins.
Martin will be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game as Eli White appears to have supplanted him on the depth chart. White will start in left field and bat seventh.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Adolis Garcia: Ends homer drought
Garcia went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-5 extra-inning loss to Minnesota.
Garcia had gone 17 games without a long ball entering Friday, but he put that drought to rest with a solo shot in the seventh inning. The outfielder is up to 17 homers, 47 RBI, 31 runs scored, seven stolen bases and a .273/.305/.524 slash line across 243 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Josh Sborz: Takes extra-inning loss
Sborz (3-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on a hit and three walks while striking out two in two-thirds of an inning Friday. He took the extra-inning loss versus Minnesota.
Sborz allowed the initial runner to score on a Luis Arraez triple, then loaded the bases and walked in a run. Demarcus Evans also allowed an inherited runner to score before escaping the jam. Sborz has allowed nine runs (eight earned) in 7.1 innings across his last nine outings. He has a 4.94 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 38:12 K:BB across 27.1 innings overall with a save, two holds and three blown saves.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Mike Foltynewicz: Yields four runs in no-decision
Foltynewicz allowed four runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts in five innings in a no-decision versus Minnesota on Friday.
The right-hander was tagged for three runs in the first inning and then allowed a solo home run to Trevor Larnach in the fifth. Foltynewicz has given up 17 runs (16 earned) in 11.1 innings across his last three starts. The 29-year-old has a 5.59 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 51:19 K:BB across 74 innings this year. He lines up for a difficult home start versus Oakland next week.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' David Dahl: Rehab assignment imminent
Dahl (ribs) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.
Dahl took batting practice Friday and felt good afterward, and the training staff has determined that he's ready to begin his rehab assignment. The 27-year-old has been sidelined since May 26 due to rib cage and upper back issues, but he appears to be trending toward a return.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' David Dahl: Takes batting practice Friday
Dahl (ribs) felt good after taking batting practice Friday, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.
Dahl has been dealing with a rib injury that later developed into back stiffness, but he met with training staff Friday to develop a plan for his upcoming rehab assignment. The 27-year-old could appear in rehab games as early as this weekend. Once Dahl returns to the active roster, he could have an everyday role after Khris Davis was released by the Rangers last weekend.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Jason Martin: Sitting second straight
Martin is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Twins.
Eli White will start in left field, with Martin set to sit for the second day in a row and fourth time in seven games.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Shaun Anderson: Claimed by Rangers
Anderson was claimed off waivers by the Rangers and optioned to Triple-A Round Rock.
Anderson has made four appearances at the big-league level this season, allowing nine earned runs on 13 hits over 8.2 innings of work. He's hit the injured list twice already for a pair of brief stints, first due to a quadriceps strain and then due to a blister. He'll give the Rangers an option next time they need another reliever but is unlikely to pitch in a high-leverage role.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Tyson Miller: Designated for assignment
Miller was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Friday.
Miller was DFA'd by the Cubs on May 30 before being claimed off waivers by the Rangers and optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on June 4. With Texas claiming Shaun Anderson from the Twins on Friday, Miller once again found himself as the odd man out on a 40-man roster. The right-hander has little major-league experience, appearing in two games (one start) for the Cubs in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Dennis Santana: Traded to Rangers
Santana was traded from the Dodgers to the Rangers on Thursday in exchange for left-hander Kelvin Bautista.
Santana was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Saturday, and he'll now head to Triple-A Round Rock to begin his time with his new organization. The right-hander made 16 relief appearances for Los Angeles to begin the year and posted a 6.00 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 15 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Hyeon-Jong Yang: Designated for assignment
Yang was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Thursday.
Yang has made four starts and four relief appearances since joining the Rangers on a minor-league deal over the winter. He hasn't particularly impressed, struggling to a 5.59 ERA in 29 innings while combining a 15.0 percent strikeout rate with an 11.8 percent walk rate. Given those numbers and the fact that the rest of the league passed up the chance to give him a major-league contract during the offseason, it's unlikely the 33-year-old gets claimed off waivers....
