Here are the day’s minor moves:
- The Rangers have purchased the contract of outfielder Antoan Richardson, as Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram tweets. Richardson had been signed to a minor league deal with an invite to big league camp, but his deal included an early out clause that led to his ascension to the 40-man. Texas created roster space by transferring injured starter Martin Perez to the 60-day DL. The speedy, switch-hitting Richardson is competing for a reserve outfield role.
