Pimentel, 25, appeared in eight games for the Rangers this season, posting an ERA of 3.97 and an 0-1 record. I think there’s a few teams that will be interested in Pimentel, the Braves, Padres, Red Sox, Marlins, A’s, Reds and Cubs are all teams in need of relief help.
Teams will have 10 days to trade for him or Texas will outright him to Triple-A.
