Rangers sign Wandy Rodriguez to minor league deal

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – The Texas Rangers signed left-handed
pitcher Wandy Rodriguez to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-
A Round Rock.

Rodriguez, 36, was released by the Braves last week after signing a minor
league contract in January. In six Grapefruit League starts, he went 2-0 with
a 3.13 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 23 innings.

In 10 seasons with the Astros and Pirates, Rodriguez owns a 91-94 record with
a 4.06 ERA in 258 appearances (248 starts). He was released by Pittsburgh
after making six starts in 2014 with a 6.75 ERA and underwent season-ending
knee surgery.

Prior to signing with Atlanta, Rodriguez had agreed to a minor league deal
with the Phillies but failed a physical.
