Rangers release 1B Loney, send 2 others to minor leagues

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) The Texas Rangers have released veteran first baseman James Loney from his minor league contract.

A week before the season opener, the Rangers also Monday optioned knuckleballer Eddie Gamboa to Triple-A Round Rock and reassigned outfielder Jared Hoying to minor league camp.

Loney, a non-roster invitee, hit .174 with one homer in 16 spring training games. He was a backup for the New York Mets last season, and has a .284 career batting average in 1,443 games with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston, Tampa Bay and the Mets.
