Texas optioned pitcher R.A. DICKEY to AAA Oklahoma, purchased the contract of pitcher RICK BAUER and added him to the active roster.

The Rangers have an organizational policy imposing a demotion for any pitcher who allows in excess of 2,000 linear feet of home runs in one game. Bauer epitomizes mediocrity but ought to provide modest improvement on Dickey’s opponent slugging percentage of 1.500. Bauer’s promotion pushes the 40-man roster to its limit. Both Dickey and Bauer have an unusual physical attribute: Dickey, as you probably know, lacks a forearm ligament, while Bauer possesses neither jaw nor chin.

Texas also re-signed DH Erubiel Durazo.
