Rangers sign Feiera bend: Former York starting pitcher Ryan Feierabend has earned a minor league spring training invitation from the Texas Rangers, according to a report from The Dallas Morning News.

Last season, Feierabend began the season with the Revs before getting picked up by the Cincinnati Reds and assigned to Class AAA Louisville, where he went 1-4 with a 6.75 ERA in seven starts. The left-hander returned to York on July 26. For the season, Feierabend made 18 starts for the Revs, going 9-5 and setting a new club record for ERA (2.70) in 113 innings.

Feierabend, an Ohio native, has 25 major league appearances under his belt from 2006 to 2008 with the Seattle Mariners. The Rangers will mark the fourth big-league organization Feierabend will work for in his 10th year as a pro.
