Roster set…Adduci over Kouzmanoff
The Rangers have set their final roster
Jim Adduci won a spot off the bench. Kevin Kouzmanoff has been assigned to Triple A Round Rock. The Rangers needed Adduci’s speed and left-handed bat off the bench.
Shawn Tolleson and Seth Rosin have won the final two bullpen spots. Daniel McCutchen and Ryan Freierabend have been sent to Round Rock.
Josh Wilson and Donnie Murphy have won infield spots. No official word yet on who will be the Opening Day second baseman. Adam Rosales will be designated for assignment.
The Rangers will carry three catchers for the first four games: J.P. Arencibia, Robinson Chirinos and Chris Gimenez. That’s because they don’t have to add Nick Martinez to the Major League roster until Saturday. He has temporarily been assigned to Double A Frisco.
Yu Darvish, Matt Harrison, Geovany Soto and Jurickson Profar gone on the disabled list.
