Rangers optioned RHP Anthony Bass to Triple-A Round Rock.

Bass has really struggled this month with a 5.23 ERA. Phil Klein has taken his spot in the bullpen.
Jul 27 - 4:47 PM

Anthony Bass could start on Wednesday against the Angels.

It's possible he'll be needed in relief before then, and if that happens the Rangers would need an alternate plan. Bass doesn't figure to be a long-term solution in Derek Holland's (shoulder) absence, as they could give Wandy Rodriguez or Anthony Ranaudo a shot.
Apr 13 - 5:35 PM

Anthony Bass did a tremendous job in long relief on Friday, allowing one run on four hits over five innings of work against the Astros.

Bass was called upon in the second inning after Derek Holland departed with an injury, and did his part to keep the Rangers in the ballgame. In the event that Holland requires a trip to the disabled list, it's likely that Bass would be the one to fill his vacancy and could derive some value in AL-only formats.
Apr 10 - 7:00 PM

Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Anthony Bass from Triple-A Round Rock.

The Rangers had been hoping to trade for a left-handed reliever to take Bass' spot, but they were unable to do so. Bass held a 5.79 ERA this spring and will work in middle relief.
Apr 5 - 3:08 PM

Anthony Bass was obliterated by the Dodgers in Friday's Cactus League start, allowing eight runs (six earned) on six hits and a walk in just 2/3 of an inning.

Two of the six hits left the yard in the form of home runs from Yasiel Puig and Matt Carson. Bass has been in the running for a spot at the back end of the Rangers starting rotation, though this rough outing is certain to hurt his chances.
Mar 21 - 2:33 PM

Anthony Bass held the Padres scoreless over 3 1/3 innings in Saturday's start.

Bass is competing for a job at the back of the Rangers' rotation and has done well for himself thus far, having also thrown two scoreless innings against the Indians on Sunday. He limited the Padres to three hits while walking none and striking out three.
Mar 14 - 6:57 PM

Anthony Bass twirled a pair of scoreless innings Sunday as the Rangers defeated the Indians 8-7.

Bass doesn't have much of a chance to make the Rangers' 25-man roster, but he would serve as depth throughout the season. He was outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster on in November after posting a 6.33 ERA in 27 innings during the season.
Mar 8 - 9:14 PM

Rangers signed RHP Anthony Bass to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Bass elected to become a free agent after being outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster late last month. The 27-year-old posted an ugly 6.33 ERA over 21 appearances at the major league level this past season. He'll provide some bullpen depth.

Astros activated RHP Anthony Bass from the 15-day disabled list.

Bass has been out since May 11 with a right intercostal strain, but he was cleared to return after getting through a two-inning rehab appearance at Low-A Quad Cities on Sunday with no issues. He might be eased back in initially but should eventually return to a setup role.

Anthony Bass (intercostal) is expected be activated from the disabled list on Thursday.

Bass got through a two-inning rehab appearance at Low-A Quad Cities on Sunday with no issues. The reliever has been out since May 11 with a right intercostal strain. "He had a good outing, and right now we feel like he's probably very close," Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "He's going to be down for a few days after pitching [Sunday] night. We'll probably make a decision either later today or [Tuesday] about exactly what to do with Bass, but we're encouraged by what we saw yesterday."
Mon, Jun 30, 2014 10:20:00 PM

Anthony Bass (intercostal) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with High-A Quad Cities.

Bass has been sidelined for a little over five weeks with a right intercostal strain. He should rejoin the Astros before the end of the month if all goes well.
