Rangers designate Justin Germano for assignment, call up Scott Baker
The Texas Rangers called up Scott Baker today and in a corresponding move DFA’d Justin Germano according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Germano had appeared in 2 games for the Rangers throwing 5.1 poor innings giving up 7 earned runs and while walking 3. On the other hand Scott Baker has been pitching very well for the Rangers AAA team posting a 3.32 ERA in 6 starts and 38 inning pitched.
The move will help rest a Rangers bullpen that had a long night last night against the Astros after Matt Harrison left with an injury.
