The Texas Rangers have acquired right-handed starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez from the Chicago White Sox for infielder Ti'Quan Forbes, the Rangers announced Thursday. Gonzalez will be eligible for the postseason if the Rangers qualify.
Texas enters play Friday four games out of the second wild-card spot. The White Sox have the American League's worst record and have traded away a number of veterans while continuing a full-fledged youth movement.
Gonzalez, 33, is 7-10 with a 4.31 ERA in 22 starts this season. He is a free agent after the season.
The Rangers designated right-handed pitcher Anthony Bass for assignment to free up a roster spot for Gonzalez.
Forbes, 21, was drafted by the Rangers in the second round in 2014 and has spent this season in Single-A.
