Rangers designate Fujikawa for assignment; call up Ohlendorf

In the latest announcement on a morning of roster moves, the Rangers have designated reliever Kyuji Fujikawa and purchased the contract of right-hander Ross Ohlendorf.

Since being activated from the disabled list Thursday, Fujikawa has allowed three runs in 1 2/3 innings of relief. The Rangers have 10 days to trade, release or outright Fujikawa to the Minors.

Ohlendorf has not made a Major League appearance since September 18, 2013 with the Nationals. He was 2-1 with a 4.35 ERA in nine relief appearances for Triple-A Round Rock.

This is a bit confusing – was he that bad? He’s potential closer material and looks like they might need one to replace Feliz. Must have something to do with him hitting Ramirez…took things into his own hands. But he’s certainly not as bad as Feliz.
