Rangers receive lefty David Rollins on a waiver claim

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Texas Rangers have received left-hander David Rollins on a waiver claim.

Rollins was received by the AL West champion Rangers from the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, four days after the World Series champs had gotten the pitcher on a waiver claim from Seattle.

In 11 relief appearance for the Mariners last season, Rollins allowed eight runs over 9 1-3 innings. He spent the rest of the season with Triple-A Tacoma, going 5-0 with two saves and a 3.77 ERA in 37 games.

A Texas native, Rollins originally signed with Toronto after being taken in the 24th round in the 2011 amateur draft, and also spent time in Houston's organization. He began his pro career primarily as a starter before moving to full-time reliever two years ago.
