Adcock was 1-4 with a 3.79 ERA with the Kansas City Royals from 2011-12 and spent last season at Triple-A. He was at big spring training as a non-roster invitee and allowed six runs over 1 2-3 innings in two appearances.

Dr. Greg Pearl is to operate in Dallas.

Texas also optioned right-handers Wilmer Font and Ben Rowen to Triple-A Round Rock and right-hander Lisalverto Bonilla and infielder Luis Sardinas to Double-A Frisco. The Rangers assigned right-hander Armando Rodriguez and infielder Rougned Odor to their minor league camp.
