Yan waived

Texas outrighted infielder RUDDY YAN to AAA Oklahoma and removed him from the 40-man roster.

The Rangers claimed Yan less than two months ago from the White Sox. It's unfair to say he was Ben Kozlowski's direct replacement, as Texas dropped and then lost Kozlowski six weeks before. That doesn't make the sequence of events any less mystifying.

Yan's departure drops the roster to 39, leaving room for another free-agent signing.
