Rangers Sign Manny Delcarmen

The Rangers signed reliever Manny Delcarmen to a minor league deal and assigned him to Triple-A, tweets Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.  Delcarmen is represented by Jim Masteralexis, as noted in MLBTR's agency database.

Delcarmen, 29, asked for his release from the Mariners' Triple-A club yesterday.  He posted a 5.14 ERA, 7.4 K/9, 3.9 BB/9, and 0.6 HR/9 in 28 innings for the Rainiers.  The signing adds low-risk depth for the Rangers' bullpen, which ranks ninth in the American League with a 4.12 ERA.

Delcarmen's best overall season was 2008, when he tallied 74 1/3 strong innings out of Boston's pen with a fastball averaging over 95 miles per hour.  Though he declined in subsequent seasons, the Sox were still able to ship Delcarmen and cash to the Rockies at the August deadline last year for pitching prospect Chris Balcom-Miller.
