Rangers Designate Mark Hamburger For Assignment

The Rangers designated Mark Hamburger for assignment, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports (on Twitter). The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Roy Oswalt, who joins the team tonight.

The Rangers acquired Hamburger from the Twins for Eddie Guardado in 2008. The 25-year-old right-hander appeared in five games for the Rangers last year and has spent this season at Triple-A, where he has a 6.55 ERA with 7.3 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9 in 45 1/3 innings.

    Humburger might have avoided this fate if he had some good cheese.

      Roster moves always put him in a pickle.

        Lettuce see what team takes a chance on him next.

        • Hitters could easily ketchup to his fast ball.

             Anyone know if he throws a slider?

            I bet they grind him up and spit him out.

            He relishes his chance to prove he is big league material with this send down.

          Wendy’s, no doubt.

       The great irony of this comment is that fangraphs actually credits Hamburger with slightly above-average fastball velocity.
