Rangers bring up Baker from Triple-A for relief

Posted: Updated:

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Right-hander Scott Baker has joined the Texas Rangers, where he will be in a long relief role two years after Tommy John surgery.

The Rangers selected Baker's contract Wednesday from Triple-A Round Rock.

To make room on the active roster, the Rangers optioned outfielder Daniel Robertson to Round Rock. Left-hander Pedro Figueroa was transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day list to make room on the 40-man roster.

Baker signed a minor league deal with Texas on March 28 after spending most of spring training as a non-roster invitee with Seattle.

Baker was 63-48 with a 4.15 ERA in 159 games and four relief appearances for Minnesota from 2005-11. In three starts last September for the Chicago Cubs, Baker was 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA in 15 innings.
