Rangers purchased the contract of OF Joey Butler from Triple-A Round Rock.

Nelson Cruz surprised the Rangers on Monday when he decided to accept his 50-game suspension rather than appeal it, so the club is scrambling to find a fill-in. Butler was batting .290/.375/.437 with 10 home runs and 44 RBI in 97 games this season at the Triple-A level. The 27-year-old is doubtful to have immediate success in the bigs.
