Noesi pitched in two games for Seattle this year, giving up two hits and three runs in one inning. Over the past three seasons with Seattle, he went 2-14 with a 6.13 ERA in 36 games, including 19 starts.
Noesi spent most of last season in Triple-A Tacoma, where he posted a 3-3 record with 5.83 ERA in 15 appearances (11 starts).
Noesi was acquired along with Jesus Montero by Seattle from the Yankees in exchange for Michael Pineda and Jose Campos on Jan. 23, 2012.
Noesi is out of Minor League options. To make room on their 40-man roster, the Rangers transferred infielder Jurickson Profar from the 15- day to the 60-day disabled list. Profar is sidelined by a torn muscle in his right shoulder.
