Recalled reliever ROSMAN GARCIA from AAA Oklahoma. Optioned pitcher RYAN SNARE to AAA Oklahoma.

I'm beginning to understand the real reason Chris Kahrl of Baseball Prospectus hates how the Rangers and other teams effectively expand the 25-man roster with constant rotation of marginal pitchers between AAA and the Majors. The rule-bending itself doesn't offend me -- the rule is at fault, not the team -- but writing about these frequent and basically meaningless transactions gets tiresome. Anyway, Snare at least got into one game before being kicked back down to Oklahoma.
