The Rangers also recalled right-hander Mike Wood from Triple-A and sent down right-hander Scott Feldman.

Redman was cut by Atlanta last week after going 0-4 with an 11.63 ERA. He went on the disabled list for surgery to remove an ingrown toenail, then made one relief appearance and gave up a grand slam to Boston's Mike Lowell.

The 33-year-old lefty was 11-10 with a 5.71 ERA for Kansas City last season. He also has pitched for Minnesota, Detroit, Florida, Oakland and Pittsburgh. He will start for Oklahoma on Tuesday.

Wood will make his fourth start for the Rangers on Tuesday in Oakland, replacing Robinson Tejeda. This will be Wood's third stint with Texas this season. He is 0-1 with a 7.02 ERA in four appearances, three of them starts when ace Kevin Millwood was injured.

Wood was 3-1 with a 2.58 ERA in six games for Oklahoma.

Feldman was sent to Oklahoma for the second time this month. He went down May 1 before coming back May 15. He is 1-2 with a 6.97 ERA in 17 relief appearances for the Rangers.
