The Texas Rangers have placed veteran right-hander Derek Lowe on unconditional release waivers, which means the team will have to pay his full $1.25 million salary.

Lowe was designated for assignment on Monday to clear a spot for starter Josh Lindblom. The 39-year-old made nine relief appearances and had a 9.00 ERA.

The Rangers also announced they signed infielder/outfielder Mark Teahen to a minor-league contract. Teahen, 31, will work out at the Rangers complex in Surprise, Ariz. today and report to Triple A Round Rock in Memphis on Friday.

Teahen is best known for his time with the Kansas City Royals from 2005-09, and also played with the White Sox (2010-11) and Blue Jays (2011). He started this season in the Diamondbacks organization.
