The Arizona Diamondbacks claimed right-hander Brett de Geus off waivers from the Texas Rangers on Friday.

Texas designated the 23-year-old rookie for assignment on Wednesday. The Rangers selected him in the Rule 5 draft in December.

De Geus posted an 8.44 ERA with no decisions in 19 appearances out of the Texas bullpen, striking out 26 and walking 13 batters in 26 2/3 innings. He also hit six batters and gave up three home runs.

He was originally drafted in the 33rd round by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2017.
