Added pitchers EDWIN MORENO and NICK REGILIO, 1B ADRIAN GONZALEZ, and 2B JASON BOURGEOIS to the 40-man roster.
Regilio was the Rangers' 2nd-round pick in 1999. All but Moreno played in the just-completed Arizona Fall League. Moreno is (I believe) an undrafted free-agent signing from the 1997-1998 period. He split between starting and relieving for AA Frisco in 2003 and went 6-5 with a 3.29 ERA. Regilio was the Rangers' 2nd-round pick in 1999. Regilio lost most of his 2003 to arm problems but sufficiently impressed Ranger management to warrant a roster spot. Adrian Gonzalez was Florida's #1 (and the #1 overall) pick in the 2000 draft. Florida soured on him when he rebounded slowly from a wrist injury and traded him with two others to Texas for Ugueth Urbina. Bourgeois was the Rangers' 2nd-round pick in 2000. Bourgeois ripped high-A pitching, then struggled in AA. A solid AFL season cemented a roster spot for the 21-year-old. Only Gonzalez has a chance to play Major League baseball in 2004.
