MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan has the information:

The Rangers sent pitcher Coty Woods back to the Rockies. They are getting first baseman Chris McGuinness back from the Indians. Both were selected in the Rule 5 Draft and no trades were able to be completed for them to stay where they are.

Woods posted a decent 3.20 ERA and 47/19 K/BB ratio across 56 1/3 innings last season between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Colorado Springs. The 25-year-old right-hander will presumably report back to Triple-A Colorado Springs for the start of 2013.

McGuinness, 24, hit .268/.366/.474 with 23 home runs and 77 RBI in 123 games last season at Double-A Frisco. He has already officially been assigned the Rangers’ Triple-A affiliate in Round Rock, Texas.

    OKC is now affiliated with the Astros. Round Rock, which used to be affiliated with the Astros, is now affiliated with the Rangers since 2011.

    The Astros are ending their affiliation w/ OKC. The Red Hawks are looking for a new organization to partner with.
