The Texas Rangers have released 23-year old righty starter/reliever Cody Buckel. Buckel pitched in 4 games (0 starts) in AA-ball for the Rangers this year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.74 WHIP. Buckel has pitched in 119 games (61 starts) in his first seven years in the minors and he is 23-29 with a 3.99 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. Buckel has whiffed 412 batters so far in his minor league career in only 372 1/3 innings and he has only given up 298 hits, but, he has also walked 213 batters so far in his career and that’s way too many. The Rangers won’t miss Buckel down the road, because he just doesn’t throw enough strikes to be effective.
