  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Shuttered for season

    The Rangers transferred Sborz (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Thursday.

    The transaction clears room on the 40-man roster for right-hander Jesus Tinoco, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of Thursday's game in Boston. The move also ends Sborz's season, as he was first placed on the 15-day IL on Tuesday due to the right elbow sprain. The 28-year-old reliever made 19 appearances for Texas, churning out a 6.45 ERA and 1.61 WHIP while striking out 32 over 22.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Goes on IL

    The Rangers placed Sborz on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with a right elbow sprain.

    Sborz is eligible to return around the middle of September, but elbow sprains typically require more extended absences. A.J. Alexy was recalled to fill Sborz's spot in the Rangers' bullpen.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Unbothered by arm issue

    Sborz (arm) was credited with the win during his relief appearance in Sunday's 5-3 victory over the Mariners after he struck out five over two scoreless innings. He allowed zero hits and one walk during the 34-pitch outing.

    Sborz's stellar relief appearance came after he was struck in his pitching arm by a comebacker in his previous outing in the series opener Friday. The Rangers' willingness to use him for multiple innings two days later implies his health won't be a concern moving forward.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Hit by comebacker

    Sborz was hit by a comebacker on the right arm during Friday's loss to the Mariners, Arianna Vedia of MLB.com reports.

    Sborz, who was the game opener, got the first two batters before taking a line-drive single off the right arm. The right-hander stayed to finish the inning, but Texas manager Chris Woodward said the team is waiting to see how Sborz responds Saturday. Woodward referred to the pitcher as a "tough kid" but acknowledged the arm was sore Friday.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Starting bullpen game

    Sborz will start Friday's game against the Mariners.

    Sborz will lead a bullpen game for the Rangers to open the series against the Mariners. He has thrown two innings in each of his last two appearances and could be in for a similar workload Friday. It's unclear who may follow Sborz into the game, though Taylor Hearn may be available to throw a few innings.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Rejoins big-league roster

    The Rangers recalled Sborz from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Joseph Hoyt of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Sborz replaces Matt Bush, who was traded to Milwaukee on Monday. Although he's pitched well with a 1.61 ERA at Triple-A this season, Sborz has a 7.94 mark in 11.1 big-league innings and doesn't figure to be entrusted with many important innings out of the Rangers' bullpen.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Optioned to Triple-A

    Sborz was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

    Sborz was called up by the Rangers on Wednesday, and he allowed one hit and no walks while striking out one in a scoreless relief inning Thursday. However, he'll head back to the minors after Taylor Hearn was recalled from Round Rock on Friday.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Back in big leagues

    The Rangers recalled Sborz from Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    After a week-long stay in the minors, Sborz will make his way back to the big club after fellow reliever Joe Barlow (finger) was placed on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. Sborz owns an 8.71 ERA and 1.94 WHIP over 10.1 innings with Texas this season and is likely to see most his work in the middle innings or non-competitive contests.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Returns to minors

    Sborz was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.

    Sborz rejoined the big-league club June 26 and delivered a scoreless inning during his lone appearance for the Rangers over the past 10 days. The right-hander has appeared in 10 games in the majors this year and has an 8.71 ERA, 1.94 WHIP and 15:8 K:BB across 10.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Called up from Triple-A

    The Rangers recalled Sborz from Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.

    Sborz joins the Rangers' 26-man active roster as a replacement in the bullpen for Matt Bush, who was placed on the 15-day injured list with right forearm soreness. While he's up with the big club, Sborz projects to work in a low-leverage middle-relief role.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Returns to minors

    Sborz was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    Sborz was with the big club for just one day after Texas designated him as its 27th man for Tuesday's doubleheader with Cleveland. He appeared in the Rangers' 6-3 loss in the first game of the twin bill, working around one hit and one walk to turn in a scoreless inning out of the bullpen.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Joins big club for doubleheader

    The Rangers recalled Sborz from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday and designated him as their 27th man for their doubleheader with the Guardians.

    Sborz will likely be in store for a brief stay with the Rangers, though the fact that Texas placed another reliever (Brett Martin) on the COVID-19-related injured list Tuesday could give the 28-year-old a chance to stick around in the big leagues once the doubleheader is completed. Through his eight relief appearances with Texas this season, Sborz has compiled a 10.80 ERA and 1.92 WHIP over 8.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Cleans up in loss

    Sborz allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one over a scoreless ninth inning in Friday's 7-1 loss to the Red Sox.

    Sborz made his first appearance since coming off the injured list, mopping up a lopsided loss. The right-hander, who appeared in 63 games for the Rangers in 2021, projects to be a low-leverage arm out of the bullpen, but that could change.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Heads back to Texas

    The Rangers recalled Sborz from Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Sborz will be back with the Rangers for the second stint in the majors in less than a week, as he was previously summoned from Triple-A to serve as Texas' 27th man in its doubleheader with the Yankees on Sunday. He'll now be part of the 26-man active roster, this time replacing Kolby Allard, who was optioned to Round Rock in a corresponding move. Expect Sborz's usage out of the bullpen to mostly come in lower-leverage scenarios.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Activated from 10-day IL, sent down

    Sborz (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Beginning rehab assignment

    Sborz (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday.

    Sborz has been on the 10-day IL with right elbow soreness since April 16, but he'll now start the final portion of his rehab process. Since the right-hander pitches out of the bullpen, he's unlikely to require a lengthy stint in the minors prior to rejoining the Rangers.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Placed on 10-day IL

    Sborz was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow soreness Saturday.

    Sborz allowed two runs on a hit and a walk while striking out one in one inning during Friday's loss to the Angels, and he's now dealing with an elbow issue that will force him to miss at least a week and a half. It's not yet clear when the 28-year-old will be able to return, but Matt Moore's contract was selected by the Rangers on Saturday.

  • Rangers' Josh Sborz: Blows lead

    Sborz allowed three runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one over one inning in Friday's 10-8 loss to Toronto.

    John King and Sborz combined for 1.2 ineffective innings of relief, after Texas built a 7-3 lead entering the fifth inning. The Blue Jays kicked off their rally with a two-out walk issued by King and ended when Teoscar Hernandez stung Sborz with a three-run home run. The righty reliever remained in to start the sixth inning and was responsible for a runner that scored after reaching base on yet another two-out free pass. Sborz is projected for high-leverage relief work, but his first outing did not go as planned.
