Rangers announced this afternoon that they have activated Hunter Pens from the injured list and selected an outsider Willy Calhoun to Triple-A Nashville to open a list. Texas also chose the right hand contract Taylor Guerrieri and placed the left hand Jesse Biddle on the list of sufferers due to the shoulder fatigue.
As Evan Grant of Dallas Utah News Relays ( via Twitter ), Calhoun is rather blindsided by the move. "I am silent" Calhoun said after learning of his decline. "I helped the team win, and if I play every day in Nashville, I help win the team, then I suppose I have to play every day in Nashville."
Calhoun was really a productive bat with Texas , hitting 277 / .31
So Calhoun also looks like a victim of a list that currently has too much Jill Galo (.266 / .406 / .626) is a member of the Triple-A sensational throughout the season. Pens (.294 / .363 / .608) and colleague veteran Shin-Soo Choo (.291 / .389 /.508) are high-performance veterans. Nomar Mazara has not yet lived with his significant prospect of payment, but has nevertheless made Calhoun in the last few months (.276 / .327 / .454 in his last 40 games).
Calhoun is likely to return in the event of an injury or trade elsewhere in the field, and at least the organization may accept this downsizing as an opportunity to continue to work for him in infiltration. According to reports, Texas has worked in Calloon on a second base and even on a third base at the end of the year, and if this experiment continues in the gameplay settings for minors, it will only increase its flexibility at the MLB level. Calhoun has a wealthy experience as a second baseball in minors, but he was moved to the field for defense concerns.
As for Guerrieri, the former first round (Rays, 2011) and top prospect will receive its first prize. shot with Rangers after a 3.47 ERA, 9.7 K / 9, and 3.7 BB / 9 in 36 1/3 innings with the Nashville Team team. He has dropped 9 2/3 Blue Jays in his first major league last year, allowing five series of nine hits and four eight-hoose walks.
