OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – The Texas Rangers recalled left-hander Aaron Poreda from Triple-A Round Rock and he will be available to pitch in Tuesday night’s game against the Oakland Athletics.

Left-hander Robbie Ross was optioned to Round Rock to make room for Poreda.

The Rangers announced they signed first baseman Carlos Pena to a minor league contract and assigned him to Round Rock.

Ross is 2-4 with a 5.61 ERA in 18 games, nine starts, with the Rangers this season. He opened the season in the rotation and was 1-4 with a 4.78 ERA before moving to the bullpen on May 20.
