John Gaub Profile
The Texas Rangers designated left-handed pitcher John Gaub for assignment on Thursday morning. The move pulls him off the 40-man roster, and the Rangers have 10 days to trade, release, or outright him to the minor leagues.
A hard-throwing lefty reliever, Gaub was claimed off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays in late May. He'd tossed 4.1 scoreless innings in five appearances for Round Rock, giving up three hits, walking two, and striking out four.
Gaub was pulled from the 40-man roster in order to make room for right-handed pitcher Tanner Scheppers, who had his contract purchased on Thursday.
