Moscoso activated, Eyre optioned to Minors
The Rangers activated right-hander Guillermo Moscoso from Triple-A Oklahoma City to give their pitching staff length in the bullpen and someone who could fill in in the starting rotation.
Willie Eyre was optioned to Oklahoma City to make room for Moscoso on the 25-man roster
In four innings with the Rangers this season, Moscoso has a 4.50 ERA over four innings pitched. He returned to Triple-A Oklahoma City to stretch his arm out to be a starter and has had success. Over seven games (six starts), he posted a 1.85 ERA over 39 innings pitched.
Moscoso’s last appeared in a game for the RedHawks as a starter on Thursday. He earned the no decision after pitching seven innings against New Orleans. He would’ve been able to start tonight considering rest.
Moscoso was acquired from the Tigers in the Gerald Laird trade on Dec. 8, 2008.
Eyre has a 4.91 ERA in six relief appearances with three stints with the Rangers this season.
