The Texas Rangers have purchased the contracts of infielder Leury Garcia from Double-A Frisco and left-handed pitcher Joe Ortiz from Triple-A Round Rock, adding them to the 40-man roster.

In addition, the Rangers re-acquired right-hander Jake Brigham from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for right-hander and Texas A&M product Barret Loux and a player to be named. Brigham has also been added to the Rangers' major league roster, putting that list at 38 players.

The Rangers reworked the original deal for Brigham, who was traded to the Cubs in July for catcher Geovany Soto, because of the pitcher's right elbow strain. Brigham went 0-2 in two starts at Double-A Tennessee before going on the disabled list for the rest of the season.

Texas also signed right-handed pitcher Johan Yan to a minor league contract with an invitation for spring training. Lefty Scott Olsen was signed to a minor league deal and will be in minor league spring training.
