Texas removed pitcher JUSTIN THOMPSON from the 40-man roster. Thompson declined a minor-league assignment and elected free agency.
Thompson arrived in Texas a 26-year-old with 36 wins and 647 Major-League innings. After six years, he leaves with 36 wins and 648.2 innings. More to come in a separate entry.
The 40-man roster currently has 36 players plus four on the 60-day Disabled List.
