Baker called up; Robertson optioned
The Rangers have called up pitcher Scott Baker from Triple A Round Rock and optioned outfielder Daniel Robertson. Pitcher Pedro Figueroa has been placed on the 60-day disabled list.
Baker was 4-1 with a 3.32 ERA in six starts at Round Rock but will be used as a long reliever out of the bullpen for now unless he replaces Robbie Ross in the rotation.
He is 63-48 with a 4.14 ERA in 162 career starts and four relief appearances with the Twins and the Cubs in his career.
