ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers have reassigned senior director of player development Tim Purpura within the organization, multiple sources confirmed Wednesday night.

Purpura's reassignment was first reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Purpura was hired in 2011 to replace farm director Scott Servais, who left for the Los Angeles Angels. Purpura had been the general manager of the Houston Astros from 2004 to '07 and an Executive Vice President of Minor League Baseball before being brought on by the Rangers.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels declined to comment at this time.
