The Rangers have announced third baseman Kyle Kubitza’s designation for assignment. Texas acquired Kubitza from the AL West rival Angels for cash considerations on June 21.
In his nearly two-month stint with the Rangers organization, Kubitza has logged 187 plate appearances at Triple-A Round Rock and batted .182/.290/.340 with four home runs. He fared better with Angels’ Triple-A affiliate, Salt Lake, with whom he hit .253/.349/.366 in 215 PAs. Kubitza also spent last year with the Angels organization and saw his only major league action with them, albeit over just 39 trips to the plate. The 26-year-old was previously with the Braves, who picked him in the third round of the 2011 draft.
