Barnette re-signs with Rangers; Gonzalez back on minor deal

Free-agent left-hander Mike Minor has reached agreement on a contract with the Texas Rangers pending completion of a physical exam, a baseball source confirmed to ESPN on Monday.

Terms of Minor's deal weren't immediately available. Because of persistent rotator-cuff tendinitis during Gose's senior season, Philadelphia took him as an outfielder in the second round of the 2008 draft.

Barnette, who had a 3.75 ERA over 103 relief appearances the past two seasons, had become a free agent when the Rangers last month gave him a $250,000 buyout instead exercising their $4 million club option for the right-hander.

Gose did not pitch after July 2 because of a strained elbow ligament.

Gose hasn't appeared in the major leagues since the 2016 season as a member of the Detroit Tigers when he batted.209 in 30 games. A scout with an American League club said Gose had a consistent high-90 miles per hour fastball. He volunteered to switch to pitching and was clocked at 99 miles per hour. He spent last season at Triple-A Rochester, going 10-8 with a 3.44 ERA in 130.2 innings. After six seasons in Japan, the 34-year-old Barnette signed a two-year deal with the Rangers in December 2015. He pitched in the minors a year ago, but the left-hander made only 11 relief appearances until July 2 before elbow inflammation ended his season.

The Rangers also signed infielder Christian Lopes out of the Blue Jays' organization. The Rangers will be looking to use him as a starter, like he was previously in Atlanta. Gose has a career on-base percentage of.309.

Minor was exclusively a reliever last season - his first since 2014 after missing two full years with shoulder woes - but he showed in 2013 (3.21 ERA, 1.09 WHIP in 32 GS) that he can thrive out of a big league rotation.
