Rangers To Release Ryan Tucker

The Rangers will release Ryan Tucker to create 40-man roster space for Mark Hamburger, according to Anthony Andro of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram (on Twitter). Tucker, 24, had not been on the Rangers' active roster before they made the move.

Tucker appeared in five games for the Rangers this year, but spent most of his season at Triple-A Round Rock. The right-hander posted a 5.40 ERA with 8.4 K/9 and 4.1 BB/9 in 68 1/3 innings at Triple-A before getting released. The Rangers claimed Tucker, a first round pick in 2005, off of waivers from the Marlins last October.

    I couldn’t think of a witty Hamburger joke. At least I tried.

  2. I heard a team with a weak payroll wanted to trade for Hamburger but they wanted Hamburger today and couldn’t pay us until Tuesday.  They would gladly pay on Tuesday though.  I just thought it was a wimpy offer.

    The question is, does Hamburger throw some serious cheddar?

    Call me crazy, but after seeing him excel in AAA AND add two more effective pitches, I think he could be a serious threat to knock Feldman out of the 6th starter/long reliever role.

    Yeah out of witty hamburger jokes as well, though my wife thinks he has nice buns.

  6. Throw in Phil Coke and hopefully lure Travis Fry-man out of retirement. I’m starving

  9. Mark Hamburger needs to lay off the high cheese. Because he’s Hamburger not cheeseburger!

    Wow, I want to shoot myself for making a terrible hamburger related pun now.
