Rangers Designate Tommy Hottovy For Assignment

The Rangers have designated left-hander Tommy Hottovy for assignment to make room for Lance Berkman, the team announced via press release.

The Rangers acquired the 30-year-old southpaw from the Royals in November in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. In 13 1/3 career Major League innings for the Red Sox and Royals, Hottovy has a 4.05 ERA, eight walks and eight strikeouts.

Hottovy whiffed an impressive 61 batters in 50 Triple-A innings last season and also showed good command with just 16 walks. His career numbers at Triple-A are strong; he's pitched to a 3.18 ERA, 8.3 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9 in 121 2/3 innings of work. The Wichita State product was a fourth-round selction of the Red Sox in the 2004 Draft.
