David Rollins is on the move again

David Rollins has been claimed by the Texas Rangers.

David Rollins has been claimed off of waivers for the second time in five days.

Late last week the Chicago Cubs claimed relief pitcher David Rollins off of waivers from the Seattle Mariners.

The Cubs tried to sneak Rollins through waivers themselves, only to have him claimed by the Texas Rangers.

The 26-year-old Rollins struggled mightily in parts of two seasons with the Seattle Mariners.

The lefty has amassed a combined 1-2 record with a 7.60 ERA and 1.864 WHIP in 31 games during the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

Those numbers come in stark comparison to his minor-league stats where he’s recorded a cumulative 28-16 record with a 3.35 ERA and 1.164 WHIP in 132 minor-league games (64 of which as a starting pitcher).

The move by Texas is an interesting one as the team elected not to claim Rollins the first time he was going through waivers.
