Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Ben Rowen from Triple-A Round Rock.

Ben Rowen (biceps) has been cleared for throwing.

Rowen battled some biceps tendinitis earlier this month and was shut down for about a week as a precautionary measure. The 25-year-old right-hander posted a dominant 0.69 ERA in 65 2/3 innings last season in the minors and is hoping to win an Opening Day bullpen job.

Ben Rowen is dealing with some biceps tendinitis that has him behind at the start of camp.

Rowen, 25, posted a 0.69 ERA over 65 2/3 innings in the minors last season and was added to the Rangers' 40-man roster in November. The reliever shouldn't lose that much ground to the arm discomfort and he'll be given a legit chance to win a bullpen job this spring.

Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Ben Rowen from Triple-A Round Rock.

Rowen earned a 40-man roster spot after posting a microscopic 0.69 ERA and 58/17 K/BB ratio in 65 2/3 innings this year between Double- and Triple-A. The 25-year-old submariner has a 1.34 ERA over his first four seasons in pro ball.

The Rangers have added right-hander Ben Rowen to major league camp.

Rowen, 24, had a dominant 1.57 ERA, 19 saves and 52/3 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 innings last season with High-A Myrtle Beach. That K/BB ratio is not a misprint. Chances are he'll begin the season in the minors, but the Rangers want to see what he can against advanced competition.
