Acquired LHP Andrew Faulkner from Texas Rangers in exchange for a player to be named later. [4/6]

We ranked Faulkner as the Rangers' 10th-best prospect in our prospect list, and with Jake Diekman’s injury it looked like he had a good chance to play a role in Texas' bullpen this season. His arsenal features a sinking fastball around 94 mph, a solid slider at 85, and a fringy changeup at 88. Faulkner is a LOOGY whose biggest problem is giving up the long ball to right-handed batters when asked to face them (five homers in 39 plate appearances). Texas frees up a 40-man roster spot with this move and earns a little cash on the side. —Brice Paterik
