Ross optioned to Round Rock

The Rangers have optioned pitcher Robbie Ross to Triple A Round Rock. They have recalled RHP Jon Edwards. He will be the 36th pitcher the Rangers have used this year. The Rangers don’t have a fifth starter but they have two days off next week so they can get by with four starters until Aug. 26. By then Ross will be eligible to come back. So will Yu Darvish if he is healthy.

 

Darvish: mild inflammation in elbow

Scheppers to relieve next year
