ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Texas Rangers left-hander Joe Saunders cut short a bullpen session Wednesday because of pain in his left ankle.

Saunders has been on the disabled list since getting hit by a line drive in his only start, April 4 at Tampa Bay. An MRI showed only a bone bruise.

The Rangers said Saunders had persistent pain after “he started to ramp it up” during his session Wednesday. He will try another bullpen session in a few days.

Right-hander Daniel McCutchen, designated for assignment Monday, cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock.

Texas also agreed to a minor league contract with Scott Cousins, a left-handed throwing outfielder they will try to convert to a pitcher. He played in 135 games for Miami and the Los Angeles Angels from 2010-13.
