ATLANTA (AP) -- Texas pitcher Alan Benes reported to the Rangers' Triple-A team at Oklahoma City on Tuesday, a day after he missed a scheduled start.
Benes, acquired from the Chicago Cubs in a May 9 trade, went 0-3 with an 11.40 ERA in four starts for the Rangers.
After giving up 29 hits and walking eight in 15 innings, Benes was optioned to Oklahoma City on May 29.
The right-hander was scheduled to start for Oklahoma City on Monday night, but he didn't report to the team. Dan Murray started in his place.
Team spokesman John Blake, in Atlanta for the start of a three-game series against the Braves, said Benes finally joined the minor league team late Tuesday afternoon.
