Texas Rangers Roster Transactions | Inside The Diamonds

Before the three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies, the Texas Rangers announced that infielder Davis Wendzel was being optioned back to the Round Rock Express. He does, however, remain on the 40-man roster. The Rangers also selected the contract of outfielder Derek Hill from the Round Rock Express and, in a corresponding 40-man roster move, placed right-handed pitcher Austin Pruitt on the 60-day injured list due to a torn meniscus in his right knee.
