Smoak, Ramirez going on the disabled list
The Rangers are planning to place two top prospects in their Minor League system on the disabled list.
Frisco first baseman Justin Smoak is going on the 7-Day disabled list with a strained left oblique muscle in his ribcage and Oklahoma City catcher Max Ramirez is sidelined with a sore right wrist. Neither injury is considered serious but both are unable to play right.
Ramirez is hitting .238 with two home runs and 21 RBI in 37 games and 143 at-bats. Smoak is hitting .325 with six home runs and 25 RBI in 41 games and 151 at-bats. He has a .444 on-base percentage and a .503 slugging percentage.
