Rangers activated C Carlos Corporan from the 15-day disabled list.

Corporan has been out almost all of the second half with a sprained left thumb. He'll see spot duty this month.
Sep 1 - 6:46 PM

Rangers activated OF Josh Hamilton from the 15-day disabled list.

Hamilton can hit and throw without any issues, but he's not able to run without pain and thus will be limited to pinch-hitting duty down the stretch. Will Venable will continue to serve as the Rangers' left fielder.
Sep 1 - 6:45 PM

Rangers designated RHP Roman Mendez for assignment.

It clears a 40-man roster spot. Mendez has allowed seven runs over 11 2/3 relief innings this season with the big club.
Sep 1 - 6:10 PM

Rangers recalled LHP Alex Claudio from Triple-A Round Rock; placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. Claudio will miss the rest of the season with the injury.
Sep 1 - 6:08 PM

Colby Lewis lost to the Padres on Monday, serving up six runs (five earned) in 5 2/3 innings.

The Padres scored only twice through the first five innings, but they plated four runs in the sixth and chased Lewis from the game. Overall, the right-hander gave up seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out two on the evening. While 2015 has been an improvement on the previous season, his 4.50 ERA isn't too desirable. Lewis will look for better results in a road start versus the Angels.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday that Jurickson Profar (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list sometime next month.

Well, that's a nice surprise. Profar began a rehab assignment last week as he works his way back from labrum surgery and evidently might be an option for the Rangers in September. His role with the big club down the stretch almost surely would be minimal, but it would be nice to see the former top prospect back in the majors.

The Rangers expect to use Josh Hamilton (knee) only as a pinch-hitter during the final month of the season.

Hamilton can hit and throw without any issues, but he remains unable to run without experiencing discomfort in his left knee. It's possible he'll require surgery over the offseason. The Rangers acquired Will Venable earlier this month as protection for Hamilton and he's now slated to serve as the club's regular left fielder down the stretch.
Aug 31 - 8:26 PM

Rougned Odor (finger) is back in the Rangers' lineup Monday.

It's Odor's first start since he cracked the fingernail on his right middle finger last Tuesday. The young infielder has hit .336/.369/.581 since returning from the minors.
Aug 31 - 5:30 PM

Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

Nothing spectacular here for Fielder, but he continues to rake, as he's done all season. The big man is slashing .316/.379/.470 with 17 homers and 78 RBI. If he can keep that average on the right side of .300, this would go down as just the second season of his career in which he's achieved that feat.
Aug 30 - 6:01 PM

Derek Holland pitched one of the best games of his career in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Orioles, striking out 11 and allowing just three hits in a complete game shutout.

Simply spectacular work by Holland. Adam Jones hit a double against the 28-year-old southpaw, but otherwise, he allowed almost nothing. Through three starts since returning from the disabled list, he's surrendered six runs in 21 1/3 innings. He'll try to match this effort when he carries his 2.82 ERA and 0.94 WHIP into a road date with the Angels next Saturday.
Aug 30 - 5:54 PM

Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.

Chirinos' progress from left shoulder soreness has been slow, but it appears he's finally made some strides. He shouldn't need too many rehab games before being activated.
Aug 30 - 12:23 PM

Josh Hamilton (knee) has yet to be cleared to resume running.

Hamilton is taking batting practice and playing catch with no issues, but his left knee remains too sore to run on. He will be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday but could be limited to pinch-hitting initially. "It feels OK to throw and hit on the knee," he said. "I just haven’t gotten to the important part where I can run or jog. That’s the next step."
Aug 30 - 12:21 PM

Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

He was able to go through some pregame drills, suggesting his return is close. Hanser Alberto is filling in at second base again for Odor.
Aug 30 - 12:15 PM

Rougned Odor (finger) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Saturday against the Orioles.

A cracked fingernail has kept him out since Tuesday. Hansen Alberto will grab another start at second base. With the rosters expanding in a few days, there's no need for Texas to place Odor on the disabled list. The 21-year-old has had a productive year, hitting .280 with a solid .479 slugging percentage.
Aug 29 - 4:48 PM

Shin-Soo Choo clubbed his 16th home run of the season as the Rangers topped the Orioles 4-1 on Thursday.

Choo got the Rangers on the board with his solo shot off O's starter Kevin Gausman in the fourth inning. He would later plate another run on a fielder's choice in the fifth inning. With the 1-for-4 effort, Choo is now hitting .248/.343/.428 with 16 long balls and 58 RBI.
