Jason Standridge


Standridge (back spasms) went on the disabled list Monday.


To make room on the 40-man roster for catcher David Ross, who was acquired from San Diego Tuesday, the Cincinnati Reds designated Standridge for assignment. The 27-year-old right-hander, who was 2-2 with a 4.59 ERA in 34 relief appearances for Texas and Cincinnati last year, had posted an 11.57 ERA in seven games this spring.


Standridge's first big league stint in a year ended in a week's time. The Texas Rangers designated him for assignment on Friday, in order to make room for veteran reliever Ron Mahay, who was coming off the disabled list. The 26-year-old Standridge made two appearances for Texas, allowing seven hits and three runs in 2.1 innings.


A little more than a year after his last big league appearance with Tampa Bay, Standridge was recalled by the Texas Rangers Friday after the club designated veteran Pedro Astacio for assignment. Standridge will work out of the Texas bullpen. The 26-year-old righthander was 5-3 with a 4.50 ERA in 15 games (10 starts) for Triple-A Oklahoma.
