Carp designated for assignment
Mike Carp was designated for assignment on Saturday to make room for Derek Holland on the 40-man roster. Carp became expendable because the Rangers want to look at Ryan Rua at first base.
The Rangers also optioned Nick Tepesch to Triple A Round Rock to make room for Robbie Ross. Since Round Rock’s season ends Monday, Tepesch will be recalled on Tuesday and still start against the Royals on Wednesday.
