Rangers release Yoshinori Tateyama

Mar 22, 2013, 11:19 AM EST


Texas released reliever Yoshinori Tateyama, who re-signed with the Rangers on a minor-league contract back in December after spending most of last season at Triple-A.

Tateyama has an ugly 5.75 ERA in 61 innings for the Rangers, but that comes with an excellent 61/17 K/BB ratio and he also has a 1.48 ERA and 71/11 K/BB ratio in 60 innings at Triple-A.

At age 37 there isn’t a whole lot of upside to be had with Tateyama, but he could probably help some teams as a middle reliever.
