Harrison spent the early part of the season in Arizona as he continued to increase his workload, and began an injury rehabilitation assignment on June 3. He went 1-3 with a 6.23 ERA (24 ER/34.2 IP) in 6 games/starts on rehab with Round Rock (AAA) and Frisco (AA), as opponents batted .316 (43-136) with 15 walks and 21 strikeouts. His last outing came with Round Rock on Wednesday at Iowa, taking a no decision: 6.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R-ER, 4 BB, 6 SO, 0 HR, 103 pitches/62 strikes. Harrison was the 2012 Rangers Pitcher of the Year and the team's 2013 Opening Day starter. He has a 49-33 record and 4.15 ERA in 132 games/100 starts in the majors, all with Texas.
Ranaudo will be in his 3rd stint with the Rangers this season, the others being single-day stays for spot starts on April 15 vs. Los Angeles-AL and June 18 at Los Angeles-NL. He allowed 6 runs in 8.1 innings over those 2 starts, but took a no decision in his most recent outing at Dodger Stadium despite 6.2 scoreless innings of work. Each of Ranaudo's first 9 major league outings in 2014-15 have been starts, and he has one professional outing in relief: August 30, 2013 vs. Syracuse for Triple-A Pawtucket in a rehab start for Clay Buchholz. He has spent the balance of the season at Round Rock, going 7-3 with a 3.39 ERA (27 ER/71.2 IP) in 13 games/starts. Pacific Coast League opponents have batted .277 (78-282) with 29 walks and 57 strikeouts. His last start was Monday at Omaha, taking the loss: 5.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R-ER, 4 BB, 4 SO, 1 HR, 104 pitches/63 strikes.
Gonzalez has gone 2-4 with a 3.74 ERA (18 ER/43.1 IP) over 7 games/starts for Texas this season in his first major league action since having his contract purchased on May 30. He did not allow a run in his first 14.2 innings in the majors, the longest career-opening streak ever by a Texas starter.
Feliz was designated for assignment by Texas following his appearance last night, beginning a window in which the Rangers have 10 days to trade, release, or outright Feliz to the minor leagues. Feliz has gone 1-2 with 6 saves and a 4.58 ERA in 18 relief appearances this season, and had been activated from a disabled list stint on Thursday.
With these four transactions, the Rangers are still at the 40-player limit on the club's major league roster.
