Rangers get LHP Figueroa on waivers from Tampa Bay

The Texas Rangers have been awarded left-hander Pedro Figueroa on a waiver claim from Tampa Bay.

Figueroa made 24 relief appearances over two seasons for the A's. He allowed four runs in three innings last season. He spent most of the year with Triple-A Sacramento.

The Rays waived Figueroa to make room for free agent closer Grant Balfour. Tampa Bay had acquired the 28-year-old Figueroa on waivers from Oakland.

The Rangers made room for Figueroa on the 40-man roster by designating right-hander Chaz Roe for assignment. The Rangers picked up Roe on waivers from Arizona. They have 10 days to trade, release or outright the 27-year-old Roe to the minor leagues.
