Rangers' Spencer Patton: Removed from 40-man roster
The Rangers designated Patton for assignment Thursday.
Patton lost his spot on the 40-man roster to outfielder Steven Duggar (oblique), whom the Rangers acquired from the Giants on Thursday and then activated from the 60-day injured list.

The right-hander has been sidelined by a strained right oblique since April 24, but he's now healthy after a one-game rehab assignment.

Rangers' Spencer Patton: Shut down with oblique strain
The Rangers placed Patton on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right oblique strain.
The right-hander likely picked up the injury during his four-batter appearance in Thursday's game in Seattle. He'll be eligible to return from the IL as soon as May 2, though the volatile recovery timelines associated with oblique strain make it a strong possibility that the reliever is sidelined for more than the minimum 10 days....

Rangers' Spencer Patton: Has strong outing
Patton struck out three over two scoreless innings in Friday's 9-6 loss to the Angels.
Patton finished off the final two innings and had his third scoreless appearance in four outings. He was mentioned as a potential closer during spring training but was left off the Opening Day roster. With the Rangers' bullpen sitting with a 5.30 ERA (28th in MLB), Patton's 1.93 ERA stands out among his mates, and he could evolve into a more important role.... See More ... See Less

Patton was recalled from Triple-A prior to Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The Rangers will add a bullpen arm as a corresponding move to starter Jon Gray (blister) landing on the injured list. Patton should work in low-to-mid leverage situations.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Spencer Patton: Optioned to Triple-A
Patton was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Patton was mentioned in the closer conversation in late March but won't even have a roster spot to begin the year, let alone the chance to earn saves. Patton should return to the roster eventually, as he recorded a 3.838 ERA and a 27.9 percent strikeout rate last season, but the Rangers apparently don't view him as an important piece of their bullpen....

Rangers' Spencer Patton: Left off roster for now
Patton and Greg Holland are not part of the 10-man bullpen crew set to open the season for the Rangers, independent baseball journalist Jeff Wilson reports.
It should be noted that Kennedi Landry of MLB.com confirmed only nine relievers ticketed for the roster -- Brett Martin is not on Landry's list. With the Rangers expected to carry 10 relievers while teams can carry a 28-man roster during the month of April, there could be one spot still up for grabs, and Texas manager Chris Woodward also indicated an unnamed member needs an injured list stint. That would leave a potential second spot to be filled. Patton and Holland, a pair of pitchers that the manager earlier mentioned were candidates to save games, could be roster additions....

Rangers' Spencer Patton: Retires lone batter
Patton retired the only batter faced in Thursday's spring training game against the Dodgers.
Patton, whose name was thrown into the closer mix by Texas manager Chris Woodward on Wednesday, made his first appearance since the manager spoke. The right-hander has been knocked around thus far in the Cactus League, giving up runs in each of his first three outings prior to Thursday. At the moment, the identity of the Rangers' closer remains very much in doubt. In addition to Patton, Woodward mentioned Matt Bush and Greg Holland as ninth-inning candidates. Joe Barlow had been the presumed closer -- he recorded saves in 11 of 12 chances last season -- but the manager seemingly doesn't want to put him in the closer's role right away.... See More ...

Rangers' Spencer Patton: Secures second save
Patton pitched a perfect ninth inning Tuesday while striking out a hitter to earn his second save of the season in a 4-3 win over the Rockies.
Patton needed just 10 pitches to work through the ninth and was able to close the game on a swinging strikeout of Garrett Hampson. It was his first save since Aug. 2 and just his second of the year. The 33-year-old owns a 3.99 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 35:14 K:BB over 29.1 innings (30 appearances) this season and could be in line for a few additional save opportunities over the final month of the season if Joe Barlow is unavailable or if the Rangers just want to give him some more looks in late-game scenarios....
