Rangers acquired C Nevin Ashley from the Mets for cash considerations.
Ashley has yet to see the major league field this season after struggling in limited duty with the Brewers last year. The veteran backstop was hitting just .240/.350/.389 in 167 at-bats for Triple-A Las Vegas prior to the trade. He is unlikely to contribute at the big league level this season.

Mets reassigned C Nevin Ashley to minor league camp.

That leaves Kevin Plawecki and Johnny Monell to fight it out for the backup catcher's job behind starter Travis d'Arnaud. Ashley hit .333 across nine spring outings before his demotion. The 31-year-old will likely begin the year at Triple-A Las Vegas.

C Nevin Ashley has opted for free agency.

Ashley was designated for assignment on October 7 and passed through waivers. Rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Colorado Springs, he'll look for gainful employment elsewhere. The 31-year-old catcher picked up just two hits in 20 at-bats with the Brewers this season. He fared a bit better against inferior pitching, though, as he hit .306/.374/.442 with eight homers and 61 RBI over the course of 94 games at Triple-A.

Rays designated C Nevin Ashley for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Luke Scott. A former sixth-round pick, Ashley batted .263/.358/.384 with eight homers and 48 RBI between Double- and Triple-A in 2011. He seems likely to clear waivers and remain in the organization.
