Rangers acquire Travis Blackley
The Rangers acquired LHP Travis Blackley from the Astros for cash considerations. He will be placed on the Triple-A Round Rock roster, not on the 40-man roster.
Blackley went 1-1 with a 4.89 ERA in 42 relief appearances for the Astros this season. He was designated for assignment Friday by Houston and outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City Saturday. The move occurs a day after the club announced Matt Harrison would be out for the season with a lingering back issue.
