Joey Gallo suffered a non-displaced nasal fracture during his collision with teammate Matt Bush on Sunday.

He'll be re-examined on Monday before potentially joining the team in Los Angeles. In addition to the nose injury, he'll have to pass through the concussion protocol before he's cleared to rejoin the Rangers. It remains unclear if he'll require a trip to the disabled list, but it seems likely he'll miss at least a couple of games.

Delino DeShields went 1-for-4 and swiped a pair of bases as the Rangers fell to the White Sox on Sunday.

DeShields led off the third inning with a single, then proceeded to swipe second and third base. Despite there being just one out though, the Rangers were unable to cash him in, squandering their best scoring chance in the ballgame. The speedy outfielder is having a nice season offensively, slashing .285/.354/.382 with three homers, 16 RBI and 24 stolen bases.

A.J. Griffin struggled in Sunday's loss to the White Sox, surrendering three runs on six hits over his five innings of work.

The right-hander walked three and struck out three on the afternoon. All of the damage against him occurred in the fourth inning, keyed by a two-run double from Tyler Saladino. Griffin will carry a 5.10 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into battle against the Athletics in Oakland on Friday.

Matt Bush was removed from Sunday's contest against the White Sox after colliding with teammate Joey Gallo.

The two were chasing down a pop fly when the collision occurred. Gallo appeared to get the worst of it in the collision. Bush walked away with a right knee bruise but will also have to pass through the concussion protocol before returning.

Joey Gallo was removed from Sunday's game against the White Sox after colliding with teammate Matt Bush while converging on a pop fly in the eighth inning.

Gallo was hit in the head during the exchange and suffered swelling in his nose and upper lip. He'll head for precautionary X-rays of his nose and cheek bone to rule out any structural damage. He'll also have to pass through the concussion protocol before being cleared to return to game action.

Shin-Soo Choo is absent from the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. Drew Robinson is getting a start while Choo rests.
Aug 20 - 12:37 PM

Mike Napoli went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and a two-run double in Saturday's 17-7 win over the White Sox.

Napoli revved up his big night with a two-run double in the third inning. He topped himself one inning later, when he launched a three-run home run to make it a 12-5 game. The Rangers trailed 5-0 heading into the bottom of the first before they exploded with a huge comeback effort. For the campaign as a whole, veteran slugger Napoli is slashing .199/.281/.452 with 26 homers and 59 RBI over the course of 103 games played. He has homered three times in his last four games.
Aug 20 - 12:43 AM

Rougned Odor went 2-for-4 with two home runs and five total RBI in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

Odor connected for a three-run home run off Derek Holland to put a cap on a six-run third inning by the Rangers and added to his stat-line with a solo home run just one frame later. Despite his spotlight moments on Saturday, his season as a whole has been somewhat underwhelming. Odor is hitting a hum-drum .223/.262/.426 with 26 homers, 58 RBI and 12 steals in 122 games played.
Aug 20 - 12:41 AM

Martin Perez surrendered six runs on seven hits over six innings in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

Perez surrendered five runs in the first inning, but the Rangers offense would back him up with a bevy of runs in the middle innings in what ended as a 17-7 win for the boys from Arlington. Up next on the docket for Perez as he tries for slightly smoother results, a road start against the Angels. He will carry a 5.26 ERA and 1.57 WHIP into that affair.

Rangers recalled INF/OF Phil Gosselin from Triple-A Round Rock.

Gosselin was called up to replace Carlos Gomez, who is out with a shoulder injury. Claimed off waivers from Pittsburgh earlier this month, the 28-year-old has managed just six hits in 40 big league at-bats this season. He'll be used in a utility role.
Aug 19 - 4:53 PM

Rangers placed Carlos Gomez on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

The move was made retroactive to August 16. Gomez had a cyst removed from his right shoulder and is still recovering. Utility man Phil Gosselin was called up to take his roster spot. It should be a minimum DL stint for Gomez, who has hit .251 with 15 homers, 42 RBI and 11 steals this season.
Aug 19 - 4:41 PM

Mike Napoli went 1-for-3 with a two-run bomb and two runs scored in a loss to the White Sox on Friday.

He took starter James Shields deep with a runner aboard to give the Rangers a short-lived lead in the fourth inning. He walked and scored another run later in the contest. Napoli has a putrid .197 batting average but makes up for it somewhat with 25 taters and 54 RBI.
Aug 19 - 12:49 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed three runs -- two earned -- in 5 2/3 innings against the White Sox on Friday.

He yielded only an unearned run through the first five frames but then teed up a two-run bomb to Nicky Delmonico in the sixth. He struck out two batters against four walks and six base hits in the ballgame. He did not earn a decision although his team eventually lost. The journeyman hurler has used a smoke-and-mirrors approach to produce a swell 3.31 ERA despite a terrible 61:48 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 119 2/3 innings. His 4.59 K/9 would be the second worst in the majors (behind Ty Blach of the Giants) if he had enough innings to qualify.

Nomar Mazara (knee) had his knee examined after Fridays' game and it was determined that he has no structural issues.

Mazara tweaked his knee during Friday's game, but it appears to be a minor issue. Look for him to return to the lineup at some point over the weekend.
Aug 19 - 12:05 AM

Nomar Mazara went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and five RBI in total, and the Rangers fended off the White Sox 9-8 on Thursday.

Mazara actually had a pair of big hits in the game, tying it with a two-run single in the third inning before breaking a tie with his three-run shot in the fifth. He's now homered in two straight and has 16, with an impressive 82 RBI -- fifth-most in the American League -- on the year. He's been especially potent in recent days, going 15-for-31 over his last eight games. The tear has his season line up to .260/.336/.440.
