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.

This was an active day for the Rangers on the transactions side as they also placed Martin Perez on the 15 day disabled list and called up RHP Nick Tepesch.

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.
