Just two days after claiming Jhan Marinez from the Pirates, the Texas Rangers have obtained Phil Gosselin off trade waivers from the Bucs, multiple outlets have reported.
The Pirates acquired Gosselin this past offseason from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for pitcher Frank Duncan. Gosselin had a good showing in Spring Training, and made the Opening Day roster. He struggled in Pittsburgh, collecting just six hits in 40 at-bats, while playing below average defense, leading to a -0.6 WAR. Gosselin spent most of his time this season with AAA Indianapolis, batting .266 and posting a .640 OPS in 63 games.
