The Texas Rangers have acquired 31-year old righty starter/reliever Scott Carroll from the Chicago White Sox for cash considerations. Carroll pitched in 3 games (0 starts) for the White Sox this year and he was 0-0 with a 11.57 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. He also pitched in 16 games (12 starts) in AAA-ball for the White Sox and he was 2-8 with a 5.55 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP. Carroll has now pitched in 47 games (19 starts) in his first three years in the show and he is 6-11 with a 4.60 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. This was just a case of the Rangers buying some rotation insurance.
