Making his first major league start, Lisalverto Bonilla yielded two runs over six innings in a 3-2 win over the Braves on Saturday.
The win was his first in the big leagues. Bonilla was a little shaky, allowing four hits and four walks while throwing 43 out of 78 pitches for strikes, but he managed to avoid any major damage outside of the third inning. He struck out four. The 24-year-old made the start in place of Scott Baker (triceps) and could get another look after today. Sep 13 - 3:57 PM

Lisalverto Bonilla will start for the Rangers on Saturday against the Braves.

Scott Baker was scratched from his scheduled start, so the 24-year-old right-hander will make his first career start. He posted a 4.10 ERA and 92/25 K/BB ratio over 74 2/4 innings at Triple-A Round Rock this season, but should be avoided for mixed league purposes.

Rangers recalled RHP Lisalverto Bonilla from Triple-A Round Rock.

Bonilla, who was acquired from the Phillies in the Michael Young deal, posted a 4.10 ERA and 92/25 K/BB ratio across 33 relief appearances and six starts in Triple-A this year. He's poised to be the 14th Rangers' player to make his major league debut this season.

Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Lisalverto Bonilla from Double-A Frisco.

Bonilla is now protected from being selected in December's Rule 5 Draft. Acquired from the Phillies in the Michael Young deal, the 23-year-old had a rough time in Triple-A this past season, but he put up a 0.30 ERA and 50/9 K/BB ratio over 30 1/3 innings after being demoted to Double-A. The hard-thrower remains an intriguing relief prospect.

Rangers reassigned RHPs Lisalverto Bonilla and Ben Rowen and INF Yangervis Solarte to minor league camp.

All expected moves. Bonilla posted a 1.64 ERA at Double-A Reading in 2012 and could make his major league debut at some point this season.

The Rangers have added right-hander Lisalverto Bonilla to major league camp.

Bonilla was acquired from the Phillies in December as part of the Michael Young trade. The 22-year-old split last season between High-A Clearwater and Double-A Reading, posting a 1.55 ERA and 64 strikeouts over 46 1/3 innings. He's a long shot to win a bullpen spot, but the Rangers obviously have high hopes for him.

Rangers acquired RHP Lisalverto Bonilla from the Phillies in the Michael Young trade.

Bonilla, 22, made a full-time move to the bullpen this season and posted a 1.55 ERA while striking out 64 over 46 1/3 innings between High- and Double-A. It shouldn't be too long before he's ready to make his big league debut.
