Shawn Tolleson RP TEX 2 Hrs

Tolleson has been confirmed as a member of the Rangers' bullpen for 2015, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Coming off a good season in the bullpen in 2014, it comes as no surprise that Tolleson will once again pitch in that capacity. He finished the campaign with a 2.76 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with 69 strikeouts in 71.2 innings. Tolleson will likely serve in a middle relief role, but could find his way towards the back end of the bullpen if others were to struggle.
