The Rangers announced this evening that they have signed right-handers Anthony Bass and Ross Wolf and outfielder Antoan Richardson to minor league contracts. All three have received invites to major league spring training.
Bass opted for free agency after being outrighted off the Astros’ 40-man roster late last month. The 27-year-old owns a 4.37 ERA over 18 starts and 78 relief appearances in the majors. He had an ugly 6.33 ERA and 7/7 K/BB ratio over 27 innings with Houston this past season.
Wolf spent this past season with the SK Wyverns in the Korean Baseball Organization. The 32-year-old pitched for the Rangers back in 2013 and posted a 4.15 ERA and 21/15 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings.
Richardson spent 2014 in the Yankees organization, mostly at Triple-A. The 31-year-old appeared in 13 games as a September call-up and actually scored the winning run on Derek Jeter’s walk-off hit in his final home game.
