Rangers released RHP Tim Lincecum.
The Rangers had until Wednesday to make a roster decision on the former Cy Young Award winner, but have instead given Lincecum his outright release on Tuesday evening. Signed close to the end of spring training, the right-hander posted a 5.68 ERA and walked nine hitters in just 12 2/3 innings at Triple-A Round Rock while dealing with a blister issue. He's now free to sign with any other team; likely on another minor league contract with a similar opt-out clause. Jun 5 - 6:41 PM

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News believes Keone Kela will emerge as the Rangers' closer.

Rangers manager Jeff Banister won't name a dedicated ninth-inning man before the start of the regular season, but Grant writes Wednesday in a Q&A with Morning News readers that he thinks "the first chance is going to go to Kela" and that Kela "can seize it from the start and hold it." The 24-year-old right-hander probably has the most closer-like profile of any pitcher in the Rangers' bullpen, with groundball maestro Alex Claudio better suited for situations in which there are runners on base. Kela posted a promising 2.79 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, and 51/17 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings for Texas in 2017.
