• The Rangers have promoted left-handed pitcher Will Lamb from Class A Myrtle Beach to Double-A Frisco. Lamb was taken in the second round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft and had a 2.41 ERA in 14 relief appearances at Myrtle Beach.
• Former All-Star closer Neftali Feliz has a 4.35 ERA in 17 games at Triple-A Round Rock and the Rangers still aren't viewing him as an option at the Major League level. Said general manager Jon Daniels, "He has been OK, but from a consistency standpoint, it's not where we want it."
• The Rangers also aren't seeing what they hoped for from former Red Sox reliever Daniel Bard, who is trying to come back from offseason shoulder surgery. He has pitched in four games at Class A Hickory and allowed 13 runs on nine walks and seven hit batters. He has retired just two hitters. Said Daniels, "He has worked his tail off, it just isn't happening."
• The Rangers signed three amateur free-agent college players: right-handed pitcher Andrew Barrett from Gardner-Webb University, left-handed pitcher Shane McCain from Troy University and first baseman Zach Stephens from Tennessee Tech.
