🕐 1 min read

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers have acquired right-hander Lucas Harrell and left-hander Dario Alvarez from the Atlanta Braves for a minor league infielder.

The AL West-leading Rangers announced the trade Wednesday. Travis Demeritte was sent to the Braves.

The Rangers had one open spot on their 40-man roster, and designated Triple-A Round Rock infielder Matt Duffy for assignment to create another spot.

Harrell is 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA in five starts for the Braves since getting called up from Triple-A Gwinnett earlier this month. Before playing in Korea last season, he appeared in 88 games from 2011-14 for the Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros.

Alvarez was 3-1 with a 3.00 ERA in 16 relief appearances for Atlanta this season.

The new pitchers are expected to join the Rangers on Thursday.
