ARLINGTON (105.3 The Fan) - The Rangers have shipped left-handed reliever Alex Claudio to Milwaukee for a "competitive-balance pick," according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. 

Rosenthal reports the pick is expected to be the No. 39 overall pick in the 2019 MLB draft. 

Claudio struggled this season after a stellar 2017 campaign. He went 4-2 with a 4.48 ERA in 66 appearances in 2018 after going 4-2 with a 2.50 ERA in 70 appearances the previous season. 

He's eligible for salary arbitration for the first time this winter.
