The Texas Rangers have received right-hander Logan Verrett on a waiver claim from the Baltimore Orioles.
Verrett was selected out of Baylor in the third round of the 2011 amateur draft by the New York Mets.
To make room on the 40-man roster, Texas put outfielder Antoan Richardson on the 60-day disabled list. He had surgery last week to repair a herniated disk in his lower back.
