Rangers Reinstate OF Craig Gentry From Concussion List; Option RHP Darren O'Day toTriple-A Round Rock08/11/2011 1:42 PM ET
The Texas Rangers announced today that the club has reinstated outfielder Craig Gentry from the seven-day concussion disabled list. To make room on the active roster for Gentry, the club has optioned right-handed pitcher Darren O'Day to Triple-A Round Rock.
Gentry was placed on the concussion disabled list on July 28. He played 5 games on an injury rehabilitation assignment with Round Rock, hitting safely in 4 of 5 with a .273 (6-22) average, a double, home run, 5 runs scored, and one RBI. He last played for Texas on July 24 vs. Toronto. He was injured in that game while sliding into second base after tagging up on a fly out in the eighth inning, but remained in the contest for the completion of a 3-0 loss. Gentry has batted .265 with 5 doubles, no homers, and 7 RBI in 39 games for Texas since being recalled on May 7. He has spent the rest of the year with Round Rock.
O'Day was recalled Saturday when Alexi Ogando was placed on MLB's Paternity Leave List, making just one appearance for Texas, a scoreless 9th inning to finish the club's win on Monday against Seattle. O'Day was on the Rangers' Opening Day roster and spent over two months on the disabled list from April 27-July 1 for surgery to repair a partial tear of the labrum in his left hip. He is 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA (5 ER/11.2 IP) in 12 relief appearances for Texas this season.
With these moves, the Rangers still have 39 players on the club's 40-man roster.
