The Texas Rangers announced this afternoon that the club has placed outfielder Craig Gentry on the seven-day concussion disabled list. To take his place on the 25-man roster, the Rangers have recalled catcher Taylor Teagarden from Triple-A Round Rock.

Gentry last played on Sunday vs. Toronto, but placement on the concussion disabled list cannot be retroactive, meaning the first date he would be eligible to return is on August 4. He was injured while sliding into second base after tagging up on a fly out in the eighth inning on Sunday, but remained in the game 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.

Teagarden, 27, will be in his fourth stint with the Rangers this season (also April 20-May 6; May 18-23; June 12-July 3). He has batted .269 (7-26) with 2 doubles and 2 RBI over 9 games with Texas in 2011. He has caught 4-of-9 (44.4%) attempted base stealers behind the plate with the Rangers this season in 9 games/6 starts. Teagarden has spent the rest of the year at Round Rock (AAA), batting .281 (38-135) with 10 home runs, 4 doubles, 3 triples, and 20 RBI in 37 games for the Express. He has gone 6-for-18 (.333) his last 4 games, and went 0-for-4 in his last contest on Tuesday vs. Memphis.

With these moves, the Rangers still have a full 40-man roster.
