The Rangers have signed 26-year old righty reliever Collin Balester. Balester pitched in 11 games (0 starts) for the Tigers last year and he was 2-0 with a 6.50 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. He also pitched in 31 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball last year in which he was 1-1 with 1 save, a 3.64 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. Balester has now pitched in 73 games (22 starts) in his first five years in the majors and he is 7-16 with 5 saves, a 5.30 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. Balester will get a shot to win a job in the Rangers’ bullpen next spring.
