Ramon Aguero Clears Waivers

THURSDAY: Aguero has cleared waivers and been assigned back to Double-A, tweets Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. 

WEDNESDAY: The Rangers designated righty Ramon Aguero for assignment to clear a 40-man roster spot for Leonys Martin, tweets Jamey Newberg.

Aguero, 26, spent the 2010 season with the Pirates' High-A and Double-A affiliates, posting a 6.14 ERA, 7.7 K/9, 5.2 BB/9, and 0.3 HR/9 in 29 1/3 relief innings.  He was designated for assignment by the Bucs in March to open a spot for Jose Veras, and later claimed off waivers by the Rangers.  Prior to the season, Baseball America ranked Aguero 19th among Pirates prospects, noting that his fastball can reach the high 90s but there are concerns about his health and toughness.
