The Texas Rangers announced on Friday that catcher Konrad Schmidt cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock. He will get an invitation to major league spring training camp. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster, putting the number at 39.

From the club's release:
Schmidt, 28, was acquired by Texas in a November 1 waiver claim from Arizona. He appeared in 4 games for the Diamondbacks last season and spent the rest of the year at Triple-A Reno, batting .277 with 7 home runs, 24 doubles, and 47 RBI in 93 contests. He had spent his entire career in the Arizona organization since being signed as a minor league free agent in 2007. Schmidt has 8 career games in the majors, all in 2010 and 2012, combining to go 1-for-15 with 2 RBI.

The club has 14 non-roster invitees coming to spring training.
