Rangers recalled RHP Wilmer Font from Triple-A Round Rock.

The 23-year-old has posted a promising 1.27 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 49/26 K/BB ratio across 35 1/3 innings this season between Double-A and Triple-A. He should fare pretty well in a middle relief role for the Rangers.

Wilmer Font (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Monday.

It will be his first since he was diagnosed with mild shoulder tendinitis last week. The shoulder ailment doesn't seem to be a big deal, but it doesn't help Font in his bid to win an Opening Day bullpen spot.

Rangers prospect right-hander Wilmer Font was scratched from Tuesday's intrasquad game due to mild shoulder tendinitis.

Font, who missed all of 2011 following Tommy John surgery, posted a 4.03 ERA and 138 strikeouts over 98 1/3 innings last season between Double- and Triple-A and made three appearances with the Rangers in September. If healthy, the hard-throwing right-hander figures to be an option in the Rangers' bullpen at some point in 2013.

Rangers recalled RHP Wilmer Font from High-A Bakersfield; placed him on the 60-day disabled list.

He was moved to the 60-day disabled list to make room for the new additions on the 40-man roster. Font, 21, hasn't pitched at all this season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Baseball America ranked him as the organization's No. 14 prospect over the winter, so he still has a very bright future if he can bounce back.
