Rangers Designate John Gaub For Assignment

The Rangers designated left-hander John Gaub for assignment, Anthony Andro of FOXSportsSouthwest.com reports (on Twitter). The team is placing Derek Holland on the disabled list and calling up Tanner Scheppers in corresponding moves.

The Rangers recently claimed Gaub off of waivers from the Rays, who had claimed him from the Cubs earlier this year. Gaub, 27, has a 3.43 ERA with 10.7 K/9 and 6.0 BB/9 in 21 innings for the top affiliates of the Rays and Rangers in 2012. He appeared in four games for the Cubs last season and has a 3.69 ERA with 11.7 K/9 and 6.3 BB/9 across parts of four Triple-A seasons.

      I think the Cubs have lost patience with relievers that can’t throw strikes consistently.

        How about all the guys who are currently in the BP that cant throw strikes???

    Anyone know if Scheppers is going to be starting? If so, would he be a good fantasy pickup?

      He won’t start. Feldman and Ross are the likely starters, Oswalt and Ross when Oswalt is ready. Ogando would be the next choice. But Feliz should be back within a month and Holland should be back quickly as his issue is a stomach virus. But Scheppers should be a good reliever.

    So, what’s likely to happen to Mr. Gaub if no one claims him?

       He disappears into a bottomless pit, never to be heard from again…

    I hope the Mets take him because the team needs another lefty in the pen before Tim Byrdak’s arm falls off.

  6. The Orioles wanted to claim him the last time but he got scooped up by the Rangers due to them having a worse record at the time, wonder if they’ll take a shot this time. The BB rates are too scary (and not in a good way) for me.
