It looks like the AL will be suckling runs from Nipple in Texas.
It sounds like we didn't get much ...other than maybe a roster spot...out of this deal.
I can't say that I'm very disappointed to see him go. My guess is that Medders gets his spot on the 25 man.
The Diamondbacks shipped the struggling right-hander to the Texas Rangers in exchange for minor leaguer Jose Marte, a pitching prospect who will turn 25 next month but hasn't pitched above Class A.
In three minor league seasons, the reliever has a 4.29 ERA in 153 innings and appears to have control issues, walking 92 batters compared to 174 strikeouts.
