  • Matt Bush: Non-tendered by Texas

    Bush was non-tendered by the Rangers on Friday, becoming a free agent.

    Bush inked a minor-league contract with Texas this past July, a week after being released by the Brewers, but he did not wind up making an appearance at the MLB level for the eventual World Series champions. The 37-year-old reliever may have to settle for another minor-league deal this winter if he wants to continue his playing career.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Not on ALCS roster

    Bush wasn't included on the Rangers' roster for the ALCS against the Astros, which begins Sunday night in Houston, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning Newsreports.

    The veteran right-hander didn't take the mound in the first two rounds of the playoffs for Texas, and he's off the roster for championship series. Max Scherzer (shoulder) and Jon Gray (forearm) have been added to the roster, taking the spots of Bush and Brock Burke.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Selected from Triple-A

    The Rangers selected Bush's contract from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.

    Bush last pitched in the majors for the Brewers on June 30, but he was DFA'd and later released after posting a 9.58 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over 10.1 innings. He signed a minor-league deal with Texas in July and has bounced back nicely by allowing just three runs in 12.2 innings in Triple-A. Bush will give the Rangers a fresh arm in their bullpen as they attempt to lock down a spot in the playoffs. Jake Latz was optioned to Round Rock and Alex Speas was designated for assignment in corresponding moves.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Lands back with Rangers

    Bush signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Monday.

    It's a homecoming for Bush, who spent four-and-a-half seasons with the Rangers before being traded to the Brewers at last year's deadline. Bush was released by Milwaukee following a 9.58 ERA and a decline in velocity, but he'll hope to get back on track in a familiar organization. The 37-year-old has been assigned to Double-A Frisco for now.

  • Matt Bush: Released by Brewers

    Bush was released Monday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Bush passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment and has now been given his unconditional release. The 37-year-old holds a 9.58 ERA in 2023, but given his past success and fact that he can now be had at the prorated minimum, he shouldn't have trouble finding a new home shortly.

  • Brewers' Matt Bush: Designated for assignment

    Bush was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Saturday.

    Bush was acquired from the Rangers at last year's trade deadline but stumbled to a 4.30 ERA down the stretch. His numbers fell off a cliff this season, with his ERA spiking to 9.58 as his strikeout rate plunged to 20.8 percent and his walk rate jumped to 12.5 percent. He allowed five home runs in 10.1 innings of work. His downturn in performance is paired with a big drop in velocity, with his fastball sitting at 94.8 mph after averaging 97.4 mph last season. That may make him an unappealing option on waivers despite his past success.

  • Brewers' Matt Bush: Reinstated from IL

    Bush (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day injured list Friday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The 37-year-old had been shelved for nearly two months with right shoulder tendinitis but will now return to the Brewers' bullpen, forcing Trevor Megill back to Triple-A Nashville. Bush made six appearances during his rehab assignment, throwing five innings while giving up one unearned run and striking out six batters.

  • Brewers' Matt Bush: Ready for rehab assignment

    Bush (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Because Bush has been on the shelf since April 24 with right rotator cuff tendinitis, he'll likely need to build back up over the course of multiple rehab appearances in the minors before being deemed ready to rejoin the Milwaukee bullpen. Prior to being shut down with the injury, Bush logged an 8.22 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 7.2 innings with Milwaukee.
