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.
