Claimed reliever MICHAEL TEJERA off waivers from Florida. Designated reliever ROSMAN GARCIA for assignment.

Garcia is just over two years younger than Tejera, but Texas wanted the lefty who has achieved at least modest success in the Majors. Tejera pitched 140 innings with a 4.45 ERA as a 25-year-old rookie (albeit in pitcher-happy Florida) and a 4.67 ERA mostly as a reliever the following year. In 2004, Tejera has a 3.97 ERA and 39/88 BB/SO ratio mostly as a starter. Garcia has never pitched well in Texas and has a 4.65 ERA and a 36/49 BB/SO ratio for AAA Oklahoma.
