The deal was announced Monday, before the teams opened a three-game series in Texas.

Chirinois, designated for assignment March 31 when Tampa Bay set its opening-day roster, was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock. The catcher didn't play in 2012 after sustaining a concussion in spring training when A foul tip struck his mask.

The Rangers designated Jeff Beliveau (bell-eh-VOH) for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster. They have 10 days to trade or release him or send him outright to the minors.

With their first major league trade with Texas, the only team the Rays haven't completed a deal with is the New York Yankees.
