Rangers Designate Arthur Rhodes For Assignment

The Rangers designated Arthur Rhodes for assignment, according to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News (on Twitter). The move creates roster space for newly-acquired right-hander Mike Adams.

Rhodes, 41, has a 4.81 ERA with 5.5 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 in 24 1/3 innings this year. He earns $3.9MM in 2011 and the Rangers have a $4MM option for 2012. If he appears in 62 games this year – he has 32 appearances so far – and is not on the disabled list at the end of the season, the club option will vest. Rhodes could draw interest from teams looking for lefty relief help despite his so-so 2011 stats.
