The Texas Rangers placed left-handed pitcher Matt Moore on the paternity list and recalled right-hander Yerry Rodriguez from Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.

Moore, 33, can spend up to three days away from the team.

He has made 42 relief appearances and is 4-2 with a 2.00 ERA with 54 innings pitched.

This season, he is 3-1 with a 4.43 ERA in 37 games (one start). He has struck out 57 batters in 42 2/3 innings and has a 12.02 strikeouts per nine innings, which ranks fourth in the Pacific Coast League.

Rodriguez has a career 24-13 record with a 3.26 ERA.
