According to an official statement released by MLB Roster Moves on Thursday afternoon, the Texas Rangers have purchased the contract of right-handed relief pitcher Anthony Bass from Triple-A Round Rock. In what has become a corresponding roster move, the club has elected to designate fellow right-hander Mike Hauschild for assignment.

It is also worth noting that the struggling Rangers currently sit in last place in the American League West division, thanks to their disappointing 5-10 record.

The 29-year-old right-hander in Bass has not made a big league appearance since the 2015 campaign. While doing so as a member of the Rangers, he had previously made appearances for both the San Diego Padres and Houston Astros between 2011 and 2014.

During that 2015 regular season, Bass made a single-season career-high 33 relief appearances for the Rangers. Over the course of an even 64 innings of work, he produced a 4.50 ERA, one blown save and 45 strikeouts against 20 walks.

For his big league career, Bass now owns a 4.40 ERA across 129 regular season appearances, 18 starts and 278.1 innings of work.

On the other hand, the 27-year-old Hauschild just made his big league debut in 2017 en route making four relief appearances for the Rangers. Over the course of a mere eight innings of work, he posted a whopping 11.25 ERA while failing to record a single win, loss, save, hold or blown save. In all, Hauschild allowed 14 hits, 10 earned runs, five home runs and two walks against seven strikeouts.
