A's DFA Kirk Saarloos 

Somewhat surprising move for the A's, who traded Chad Harville to the Houston Astros to pick up Saarloos earlier this year.

Saarloos is a command righthander who, after being picked in the 3rd round by the Houston Astros in the 2001 draft, was in the majors a year later after dominating the minors. He could never quite get it together in the majors, though, proving to be a bit too hittable.

He'd be a worthwhile pickup off of waivers for the Rangers, but given John Hart's preference for hardthrowing guys, I doubt they'll put in a claim.
