Loux was drafted by the Diamondbacks with sixth overall pick of the 2010 amateur draft but failed a physical due to a torn labrum and other elbow injuries. This led the D'Backs to pull out of a contract agreement and made Loux a free agent, whereupon he signed with Texas in November 2010. Loux has a 3.62 ERA, a 8.7 K/9 and a 3.03 K/BB ratio in 46 starts over two years of pro ball, pitching last season at Double-A Frisco.
Brigham returns to the Rangers after being dealt to the Cubs in July as part of the Geovany Soto trade. The 24-year-old has a 4.49 ERA and 8.2 K/9 rate in six minor league seasons and made just two appearances for Chicago's Double-A team before suffering a season-ending elbow strain.
