Drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 3rd round of the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft out of Louisburg College, Rupe was acquired by the Texas Rangers along with Frank Francisco and minor leaguer Anthony Webster to complete an earlier trade for Carl Everett in July 2003.

Early in the 2006 season, Rupe was placed on the 60-day disabled list due to an inflamed left elbow. Upon his recovery, he spent time rehabbing with the Triple-A Oklahoma RedHawks. He was recalled to the Rangers on July 28, 2006,[1] and finished the season working out of the bullpen in a middle relief role.

Rupe failed to make the big league roster to start the 2007 season, and was optioned to the RedHawks. In 2008, Rupe made the major league roster and appeared in 46 games. He was granted free agency on November 9, 2009.

On November 25, 2009, Rupe signed a minor league deal with the Kansas City Royals.[2] He made the Royals' 25 man roster, but on May 12, 2010, Rupe was designated for assignment.

He signed a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles in November 2010.[3] He was later added to the 40-man roster before being designated for assignment on May 10, 2011.[4]

On August 5, 2011 Josh Rupe was released by the Baltimore Orioles.[5] He last played for the Somerset Patriots of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball.


He is married to April Winfree Rupe and has two sons.
