The Rangers have claimed left-hander Charlie Leesman off release waivers from the White Sox, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). Leesman has five days to accept or reject the claim.
The left-hander turned in a 2.47 ERA with 6.9 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 in 26 Triple-A games last season, his first time at that level. The 26-year-old Leesman has been with the White Sox organization since being drafted by the club in 11th round of the 2008 draft. The White Sox requested release waivers for Leesman on Wednesday.
