Analysis: Bush was the top pick in the 2004 draft and signed with the Rangers on a minor league deal in December after being released from prison in October. He made two appearances in spring training and impressed his coaches with his array of pitches, including a fastball of nearly 100 mph. The Rangers said they were buying his contract from Double-A Frisco and would make a corresponding roster move later.
