Rangers Pick Up LHP Gaub from Rays



    The Texas Rangers grabbed LHP John Gaub on a waiver claim from the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, giving them a full 40-man roster.

    Gaub, 27, was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay on Monday after being acquired from the team on April 5 on a waiver claim from the Cubs.

    This season, Gaub has been in the bullpen with Triple-A Durham, going 0-1 with one save and a 4.32 ERA (8 ER/16.2 IP) over 16 relief appearances.

    Here is more on Gaub from the Rangers:

    Originally a 21st round pick (641st overall) by the Cleveland Indians in the 2006 June draft, Gaub was acquired by the Cubs, along with right-handed pitchers Chris Archer and Jeff Stevens, in exchange for infielder Mark DeRosa on Dec. 31, 2008.  He made his major league debut with the Cubs on Sept. 12, 2011, and went 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA (2 ER/2.2 IP) over 4 relief appearances in his only big league action to date.  The left-hander has a career 12-13 record and 3.65 ERA (93 ER/229.1 IP) in 187 games/one start over 6 seasons in the minor leagues.
