Astros trade Corporan to Rangers for Bostick; RP Germen DFA'd


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) The Rangers acquired catcher Carlos Corporan from the Astros on Wednesday in exchange for pitcher Akeem Bostick. Rangers pitcher Gonzalez Germen was designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Corporan.

The 31-year-old Corporan joins the Rangers after spending the last four seasons with the Astros. He is a career .226 hitter with 17 home runs, 21 doubles and 63 RBI in 199 games. Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine said Corporan will be the backup catcher to Robinson Chirinos, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The 19-year-old Bostick was a second-round draft pick in 2013. He is 9-7 with a 4.46 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 35 career appearances (26 starts) in the minors. He played at Class A Hickory in 2014.

Germen was acquired in a trade with the Yankees on Tuesday. It is the third time this offseason he has been designated for assignment.

Swollen thumb limited Carlos Corporan


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) Astros catcher Carlos Corporan has been limited a bruised right thumb over the last two months, MLB.com reports Thursday.

"It's been hurting," he said before Thursday's game. "Just the fact I don't play every day, it's something you have to keep treating and then take care of. I'm just trying to forget about it and perform the best I can."  

Coporan injured the thumb in mid-June and has been trying to deal with the injury by adding extra padding while catching. The fact that he does not play everyday has helped him avoid the DL, but this might be an injury he has to deal with for the rest of the season.

"I'm trying to do my best and take some medicine and try to get the best treatment I have for my thumb," he said. "The [training staff] has been doing a pretty good job. They've kept me in the lineup, avoiding the DL."
