ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Rangers on Friday recalled left-handed pitcher Michael Kirkman from Round Rock and assigned right-hander Brett Tomko to the Triple-A affiliate.

Kirkman will be in the bullpen when the Rangers open a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals on Friday night at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The 24-year-old is is 1-3 with a 5.35 ERA and one save in 10 games (six starts) for Round Rock.

This will be Kirkman’s second stint with Texas this season. He was with the Rangers from April 15-20 and allowed five earned runs in in 1 2/3 innings in his only appearance April 19 against the Los Angeles Angels.

Tomko is 0-1 with a 4.58 ERA in eight relief appearances with the Rangers since his contract was purchased from Round Rock on April 20.
