Verrett claimed by Rangers

Rule 5 Draft pick Logan Verrett has been claimed off waivers by the Texas Rangers.  The right-hander Verrett fared well in Spring Training, posting a 1.93 ERA in 14 innings. He walked just two and struck out 12.

Verrett was impressive, though it was going to be hard for the Os to keep both of their Rule 5 guys. They also have Jason Garcia, who they selected from Boston, still available in camp.

Verrett, 24, was selected from the Mets and it will be a homecoming of sorts for the Baylor graduate and Texas native. He took to his Twitter account to thank the O’s and also tweeted out, “Headed back to Texas, couldn’t be happier! .”
