According to MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan, the Rangers released reliever Brendan Donnelly today. Donnelly allowed five runs in six spring innings, striking out five and walking one.
Donnelly, 37, was on a $950K minor league deal. He had Tommy John surgery in '07 and played at various levels in the Indians organization last year.
The Rangers now have seven pitchers fighting for four bullpen slots, including offseason imports Derrick Turnbow and Jimmy Gobble (and possibly Jason Jennings).
