Lisalverto Bonilla shut out the Astros for six innings to pick up a victory Wednesday.
Bonilla allowed four hits, walked two and struck out seven in the gem. He ended up going 3-0 with a 2.12 ERA in his three September starts, which can only help his chances of winning a rotation spot next spring. We see the 24-year-old as a long-term reliever, but perhaps he'll continue to surprise. Wed, Sep 24, 2014 11:28:00 PM

Lisalverto Bonilla picked up a win after allowing two runs in five innings Friday against the Angels.

Spotted seven runs in the first two innings, Bonilla had an easy path to his second big-league victory, though he did walk four along the way. His long-term role is probably in the bullpen, but he'll get one more start next week against the Astros or A's.

Lisalverto Bonilla will start for the Rangers against the Angels on Friday.

Bonilla made his first major league start over the weekend, picking up the win against the Braves. With Scott Baker still dealing with a triceps issue, Bonilla will get another turn, this time against the AL West-champion Angels. The 24-year-old isn't much of a streaming option at this point.

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.

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.
