Big news came through for one former Wildcat on Thursday, as Kyle Cody received a call up to the Big Leagues from the Rangers alternate camp.

You might remember Cody’s name from his standout year in 2016 where he went 6-2 with a 3.35 ERA for the baseball Cats, which ultimately helped him to being drafted in the sixth round with the 189th pick to Texas.

Cody is coming off Tommy John surgery and last pitched in 2018. In 2017, he posted a 9-6 W/L with a 2.64 ERA and appearing in 23 games. All of which came at no level higher than Advanced A.

Speaks to the confidence the front office and coaching staff in Texas have in Cody to come in and help immediately for a struggling bullpen.

What a way to make your comeback into game play from a major injury. Getting your first appearance in the Big Leagues.

Be looking for Cody to get his first appearance in the comings days as the Rangers travel to Seattle to face his former Kentucky teammate Evan White.
