Dahl DFA’d, Evans optioned, Herget added

The Texas Rangers have added newly claimed outfielder D.J. Peters to their active roster and have purchased the contract of pitcher Jimmy Herget from AAA Round Rock. To open up a spot on the active roster for Peters, the Rangers have optioned pitcher Demarcus Evans to Round Rock. To clear a spot on the active and 40 man roster for Herget, the Rangers have designated outfielder David Dahl for assignment.

The biggest move here is Dahl getting the axe. Signed to a free agent contract after he was surprisingly non-tendered by the Colorado Rockies, Dahl was given the left field job amid hopes that he could stay healthy and fulfill the promise he showed in his prospect days.
