Bass was recalled Wednesday from Triple-A Round Rock.

EDGE Analysis

Bass, who has operated on the majors-to-minors shuttle this week, is back with the big-league club following the injury to Cole Hamels (oblique). The 29-year-old will likely be seldom-used in high-leverage situations, and in his one appearance this season, he gave up six runs over three innings.

Bass was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

He gave up four earned runs in three innings with the big-league club, and is essentially an up-and-down bullpen arm at this point in his career. The move was to open up a roster spot for Sam Dyson, who was activated from the DL.

Bass coughed up six runs (four earned) and surrendered nine hits in three innings of long relief during Tuesday's 8-1 loss to the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

It wasn't an auspicious season debut for Bass, who entered the game in the fifth inning after starter Andrew Cashner surrendered a homer to open the frame. Bass did little to clot the bleeding, giving up five hits and throwing a wild pitch before recording the first out of the inning. Don't expect on the Rangers to count on the veteran for high-leverage work out of the bullpen anytime soon.

Bass had his contract purchased from Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bass will likely head to the bullpen where he could serve as a long relief option if needed. The 29-year-old put up impressive numbers at Round Rock before earning the promotion, allowing just two hits through 8.1 scoreless innings while striking out an astonishing 16 batters.

Bass signed a minor league contract with the Rangers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Bass returns to Texas after playing 33 games with the club in 2015. He spent last season in Japan, where he compiled a 3.65 ERA in 103.2 innings pitched. The right-hander has a 4.40 career ERA and a 1.39 WHIP in five major league seasons and will be a long shot to make the squad out of spring training.

Bass announced that he plans to continue his baseball career in the United States during the 2017 season.

EDGE Analysis

Bass pitched for the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters in Japan last season, and went 8-8 with a 3.65 ERA in 14 starts and 23 relief appearances. That being said, the 29-year-old didn't see a lot of success stateside prior to leaving, as his 4.40 career ERA would suggest, which could hurt his prospects of garnering much of a role at the major league level.

Bass was released by the Mariners on Thursday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bass initiated the release in hopes of finding a better opportunity on a team in Japan. He was expected to provide depth in the Mariners' bullpen, but his spot on the 40-man roster is now vacant. As a Ranger last season, Bass put up a 4.50 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 45 strikeouts in 64 innings.

Bass was traded from the Rangers to the Mariners on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Bass will provide the Mariners with some depth out of the bullpen as an additional piece of a trade that centered around Leonys Martin and Tom Wilhelmsen. In 64 innings with the Rangers last season, the 28-year-old posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 45 strikeouts.

Bass could be in line to start Wednesday against the Angels, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Bass took over and pitched five innings following Derek Holland's injury and could fill in as his replacement in the rotation. It's still possible Bass is needed out of the bullpen either Monday or Tuesday, so no official announcement on Wednesday's starter has been made yet.
