The latest minor moves from around baseball….
- The Rangers announced yesterday that right-hander David Carpenter has been assigned outright to Triple-A. Carpenter was designated for assignment on Monday, and thus must have cleared waivers before being removed from the Rangers’ 40-man roster. This is the second time Carpenter has been DFA’ed and outrighted this season, following a similar path back to Triple-A in June. The righty appeared in three games during this latest stay on the Texas roster, and for the season has a 10.80 ERA in 3 1/3 innings over four total appearances. After tossing 211 1/3 relief innings for five different teams from 2011-15, Carpenter didn’t make it back to the Major Leagues until this season, after three years battling injuries while bouncing around the minors and independent leagues.
