The Rangers, continuing their search for relief help, have signed right-handed pitcher Manny Delcarmen to a minor-league deal and assigned him to Triple-A Round Rock.

Delcarmen, 29, asked for and was granted his release by the Mariners on May 31 after going 2-2 with a 5.14 ERA in 18 games for Triple-A Tacoma. That was part of his contract signed in February.

He was a second round pick by the Red Sox in 2000 and was 11-6 with a 3.89 ERA and three saves in 289 relief appearances for Boston from 2005 to 2010. He has had at least 55 appearances at the big league level in each of the past three seasons. He has 11 postsesaon appearances in his career, including six during Boston's World Series run in 2007.
