Rangers manager Jeff Banister said Carlos Gomez could be called up on Thursday.
That's assuming everything goes well in his third game with Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday night. Gomez went 3-for-5 with a triple and two RBI on Monday and is 4-for-9 so far at the Triple-A level. Texas signed the 30-year-old center fielder to a minor league contract last week after he was released by the Astros.
DJ LeMahieu was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Tuesday due to left wrist inflammation.
Daniel Descalso will start at second base and bat sixth Tuesday versus Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson. This could be a multi-game absence for LeMahieu.
Rangers activated LHP Derek Holland from the 60-day disabled list.
Holland will start for the Rangers on Tuesday night against the Reds after missing the last two months with shoulder inflammation. He had a 5.20 ERA in 14 starts with Texas before landing on the disabled list.
Lance Lynn (elbow) is set to make a rehab start Wednesday with Double-A Springfield.
He'll likely throw around 50 pitches, or three innings. Lynn worked 1 2/3 scoreless innings in his minor league rehab debut last Monday with High-A Palm Beach and came out of the appearance with no abnormal discomfort in his surgically-repaired right elbow. He's made a miraculous recovery so far from Tommy John surgery and could be an option for the Cardinals by mid-to-late September.
Rangers recalled RHP Shawn Tolleson; placed him on the 60-day disabled list.
It's been an abysmal 2016 for Tolleson, who began the season as the Rangers' closer but went on to post a 7.68 ERA in 36 1/3 innings. He is officially done for the year.
