Rangers designate McCutchen for assignment

ARLINGTON -- The Rangers have designated pitcher Daniel McCutchen for assignment to make room for Colby Lewis on both the active and 40-man roster. McCutchen pitched in one game for the Rangers, but lost his long relief job when the Rangers acquired Hector Noesi from the Mariners.

Joe Saunders, who is on the disabled list with a bruised left foot, threw in the bullpen on Monday for the first time since his last start against the Rays on April 4. The Rangers will wait to see how Saunders comes through his bullpen and then put him through some field drills to test the foot. Saunders, who was hit in the foot by a line drive in his last start, is eligible to come off the disabled list on April 20.
