Carlos Corporan has elected free agency.

Corporan was outrighted off the Rangers' 40-man roster last week after batting just .178/.244/.299 in 121 plate appearances during the 2015 regular season. Veteran catchers tend to have nine lives and Corporan should be able to latch on with a new organization this winter, but it'll probably be on a non-guaranteed minor league contract.

Carlos Corporan (thumb) has been pulled off his rehab assignment.

Corporan is still feeling soreness in his sprained left thumb and there's no timetable for when he'll resume the assignment. With Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) having gone on the disabled list over the weekend, that means the Rangers will be going with Chris Gimenez and Bobby Wilson at catcher for a while.
