Rangers' Kyle Cody: Returns from injured list
Cody (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day injured list by Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.
Cody has been sidelined since undergoing shoulder surgery late last September, and he's on Rochester's active roster after an eight-game rehab assignment with Texas' rookie-level affiliate in the Arizona Complex League. Cody appeared in seven games for the Rangers last year and had a 7.94 ERA over 11.1 innings, and he could be a bullpen option down the stretch for the big-league club.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Outrighted to minors
Cody (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.
Cody dealt with shoulder injuries for most of the 2021 campaign and will miss the start of the 2022 season after he underwent surgery in late September. The right-hander will now lose his spot on the 40-man roster to make room for several prospects whose contracts were selected Friday.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Undergoes shoulder surgery
Cody (shoulder) underwent labral debridement surgery Wednesday, Chris Halicke of SI.com reports.
Cody has been shut down since late April with an inflamed right shoulder, and with the injury failing to show the desired improvement over the subsequent five months, the 27-year-old has seemingly opted for a procedure as the last resort. The Rangers are hopeful that Cody will be ready to pitch in the second half of the 2022 campaign, but any setbacks along the way could push his recovery timeline into 2023.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Eyeing September return
Rangers president of baseball operations Jon Daniels said last week that Cody (shoulder) could be ready to return from the 60-day injured list in September, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Cody was shut down in late April with a right shoulder impingement, and he doesn't appear to have made much meaningful progress in his recovery from the injury. The Rangers are holding out hope that Cody will be able to increase the intensity of his throwing program in August, but he'll still need to complete an extended minor-league rehab assignment before potentially returning to the big leagues....

Rangers' Kyle Cody: Shifts to 60-day IL
The Rangers transferred Cody (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Sunday.
Cody's move to the 60-day IL means he won't be eligible to rejoin the Rangers until at least late June while he recovers from a right shoulder impingement. The transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for catcher Jack Kruger, whom the Rangers claimed off waivers from the Angels.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Takes loss Friday
Cody (0-2) took the loss Friday against the White Sox, allowing three runs on four hits while striking out four across three innings.
The young reliever was called upon to preserve a tie game late. Cody would register one clean inning, but would get hit hard in his final two innings. The 26-year-old has surrendered runs in five out of his seven outings this year and maintains a 7.94 ERA across 11.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Shut down with inflamed shoulder
The Rangers placed Cody on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right shoulder inflammation.
Texas recalled Josh Sborz from its taxi squad to replace Cody in the bullpen and on the 26-man roster. Cody had worked mostly in lower-leverage spots in relief for the Rangers this season, posting a 7.94 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 11.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Throws scoreless inning
Cody allowed one hit and struck out two over a scoreless inning in Friday's 3-0 loss to the Padres.
This was the first scoreless outing among three appearances for Cody, one of several Rangers with a scant major-league track record. Coming off Tommy John elbow surgery that wiped out 2019, the right-hander started five games for Texas in 2020 and is being used out of the bullpen this season. What looked like fine results on the surface in 2020 (1.59 ERA) were less special upon deeper inspection (5.2 BB/9, 5.37 xFIP). Thus far in 2021, the results have not been so great, as Cody has permitted five runs (four earned) on seven hits, one walk and three hit batsmen over 4.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Makes Opening Day roster
Cody has been informed that he'll make the Rangers' Opening Day roster, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Cody will begin the season in the bullpen after tossing just 22.2 innings across the past two seasons. The right-hander has posted a 7.15 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in 11.1 innings this spring and should have his workload monitored in 2021. However, he could fill in as a starter if needed this year....

Rangers' Kyle Cody: Throws three scoreless innings
Cody allowed one walk and struck out six over three scoreless innings in Wednesday's spring game against the Reds.
Cody entered camp with several other young pitchers competing for two tandem rotation spots but had not delivered results over his first four appearances. Prior to Wednesday's impressive outing, the right-hander allowed nine runs, 17 hits and three walks over 8.1 innings. Cody underwent Tommy John elbow surgery and missed all of 2019 before throwing just 22.2 innings in 2020. As such, the Rangers plan to monitor his usage in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Struggles with delivery
Cody could not consistently keep his delivery in line Sunday and allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in two innings against the Dodgers, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Mike Foltynewicz started Sunday's game, then was followed by three pitchers competing for the final rotation spot, including Cody. "It was honestly good for him to have to kind of grind it out and see how he responds. I'm not worried about him. I think he'll make the adjustment. I know he will get back down in the strike zone," manager Chris Woodward said about Cody. Dane Dunning (one BB, two IP) was the best of the starter candidates, while Cody and Hyeon-Jong Yang (one run, two hits, one HR, one IP) need to be better than they showed.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Strong over five innings
Cody allowed a run on three hits and three walks with one strikeout in five innings in a no-decision versus the Astros on Friday.
The only run against Cody came on a George Springer triple in the fifth inning. Other than that, Cody was able to keep the Astros in check. The 26-year-old Cody hasn't allowed more than a run in any of his eight appearances (five starts) this year. He ends with a 1.59 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 22.2 innings.... See More ...

Rangers' Kyle Cody: Picks up first career win
Cody (1-1) picked up the win Sunday against the Angels, allowing one run on three hits across five innings. He fanned five and did not issue a walk.
Despite being limited to just 61 pitches, Cody put together by far the best outing of his young career Sunday. The rookie was efficient, throwing 46 strikes while not allowing a free pass on the way to picking up his first big-league victory. The Halos scored their lone run off the right-hander when Taylor Ward followed Justin Upton's double with an RBI single in the bottom of the second. Cody will look to conclude the season on a positive note when he takes the ball against Houston on Friday.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Continues to stretch out
Cody allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out one across three innings Tuesday against the Astros. He did not factor into the decision.
Cody remained limited in his pitch count, though he went from 55 pitches in his previous outing to 74 on Tuesday. His struggles to find the zone forced him to work inefficiently, however, leading to another three-inning start. Cody has prevented runs well as he has a 1.42 ERA across 12.2 frames this season, but a 12:10 K:BB suggests his success is unsustainable.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Throws 55 pitches
Cody allowed one earned run on three hits and three walks while striking out three across 2.1 innings Wednesday against the Angels. He did not factor into the decision.
Cody's lack of control led to a very short outing, as he walked three consecutive batters in the third inning and was pulled with the bases loaded. He was spared any additional charged runs after Jesse Chavez entered the game and retired the first two batters he faced to end the frame. Cody has yet to complete more than three innings in any appearance, though this was the first occasion that he surrendered an earned run. He's currently projected to get the chance to return to the mound Tuesday at Houston.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Takes first loss
Cody (0-1) was charged with the loss Friday against the Mariners, allowing one run (unearned) on one hit and a pair of walks while striking out two.
Cody, who was making his first MLB start after tossing 4.1 scoreless innings over three relief appearances, limited the damage to an RBI single to Ty France in the second frame. Luckily, the run was unearned, though it was due to his own throwing error. The 26-year-old stretched it out to 45 pitches this time after tossing 39 in his last relief outing. Cody's ERA remains unblemished on the season to go with a 0.95 WHIP across 7.1 innings of work. The right-hander will take on the Angels on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Set to start Friday
Cody will start Friday's game at Houston, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The 26-year-old was previously expected to take the mound Saturday, but he'll instead be receiving the starting nod for Friday's contest. Cody will receive the initial opportunity at replacing Mike Minor in the starting rotation. The 26-year-old threw 39 pitches in his previous outing and is only expected to pitch three or four innings Friday as he continues to get fully stretched out.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Starting Saturday
Cody is the scheduled starter for Saturday's road game against the Mariners.
Cody gets the first shot at replacing Mike Minor in the rotation after Minor was traded to Oakland on Monday. He was up to 39 pitches the last time out Saturday when he threw 2.1 innings against the Dodgers. The right-hander has allowed one hit and three walks while striking out six over 4.1 scoreless innings.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Kyle Cody: Recalled from alternate camp
Cody was recalled from the Rangers' alternate training site Thursday.
Cody was added to the Rangers' 60-man roster near the end of camp, and he'll now be in line to make his major-league debut at some point, likely out of the bullpen. The right-hander hasn't pitched in the minors since undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2018, but he posted a 2.64 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 126 innings at the lower levels of the minor leagues in 2017....

Rangers' Kyle Cody: Nabs spot in roster pool
The Rangers added Cody to their 60-man roster pool Monday and assigned him to their alternative training site, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Cody already possesses a spot on the Rangers' 40-man roster, but his assignment to the alternative site suggests he won't warrant consideration for the club's active 30-man Opening Day roster. Instead, expect the right-hander to begin the season on the taxi squad and serve as an emergency depth option for the big-league pitching staff.... See More ... See Less
