Texas Rangers Acquire Ronald Herrera From Yankees

Published

The Texas Rangers have acquired right-hander Ronald Herrera from the New York Yankees, according to MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand.

The trade, announced on Monday, saw lefty Reiver Sanmartin sent to the Yankees in return.

The Yankees entered the day with just three open 40-man spots and with a handful of players worthy of those spots, so trading Herrera to Texas vacates one of those spots and allows for another player to be protected to the Rule 5 Draft.

Texas entered the day with 10 spots on their 40-man roster.

All teams have a deadline to meet tonight to set their rosters.

Herrera has performed well in the minors, posting a 1.91 ERA with 6.8 K/9 against 1.8 BB/9 in 75 1/3 innings.
