Left-hander Robbie Ross was optioned less than 24 hours after starting Thursday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Ross was moved back to Round Rock after the Texas Rangers purchased the contract of right-handed pitcher Jon Edwards from Round Rock on Friday afternoon. Edwards attended Keller High School and was drafted by St. Louis in 2006.

“We on’t need a fifth starter until we get back from Miami,” manager Ron Washington said of the decision to replace Ross with Edwards.

Ross was recalled Thursday morning to start for the injured Yu Darvish and took the loss, allowing six earned runs on eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.

The Rangers have a full 40-man roster with the addition of Edwards.

Edwards, 26, has a 2.27 ERA with 38 strikeouts and 13 walks in 22 relief appearances since May at Frisco and Round Rock.

“Edwards was recommended. Do we expect him to dominate? I don’t think he has that much knowledge in him, but it gives us a chance to look at him,” Washington said. “The bullpen has been working hard out there, so we’re getting a fresh arm and another piece.”
