Rangers’ Greer Activated From DL
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ The Texas Rangers activated outfielder Rusty Greer from the 15-day disabled list on Saturday before their game against the Minnesota Twins.
Greer had been on the disabled list since April 13 with a pulled left hamstring, but he was battling other injuries as well.
He underwent surgery for bone spurs on his right ankle on April 16 and had shoulder soreness during his rehab assignment last week in Tulsa.
Greer remained in Texas when the Rangers left for their current road trip to be with his wife Lauri, who delivered twins, a boy and a girl, on Tuesday night.
He is batting .240 (6-for-25) with a homer and five RBIs in seven games for the Rangers this season.
The Rangers optioned right-hander Danny Kolb to Triple-A Oklahoma to make room for Greer. Kolb allowed five runs in two-thirds of an inning Friday night against Minnesota in his only outing.
