Rangers receive RHP Logan Verrett on waiver claim from Baltimore

Verrett was selected in the December Rule 5 Draft from New York Mets

Arlington, Texas - The Texas Rangers announced today that the club has received right-handed pitcher Logan Verrett on a waiver claim from the Baltimore Orioles. Verrett was selected by Baltimore from the New York Mets in the Rule 5 Draft on December 11, 2014. To make room for Verrett on the 40-man roster, the Rangers have placed outfielder Antoan Richardson on the 60-day disabled list.

Verrett, 24, has posted no record with a 1.93 ERA (3 ER/14.0 IP) in 9 Grapefruit League games for the Orioles this spring, allowing 2 walks with 12 strikeouts. He pitched for Triple-A Las Vegas in the Mets system in 2014, going 11-5 with a 4.33 ERA (78 ER/162.0 IP) in 28 games/starts in the Pacific Coast League. He tied for the league lead in starts and ranked among PCL leaders in innings (2nd), wins (4th), and fewest walks-per-9-innings (5th, 1.89).
