Gentry being called up by Rangers
Add Double Frisco center fielder Craig Gentry to the list of names being called up by the Rangers for September.
Gentry, 25, hit .303 with 100 runs scored, eight home runs and 53 RBI for the Roughriders. He also stole 49 bases and had a .378 on-base percentage. He gives the Rangers an extra right-handed bat and some speed off the bench.
Gentry was a 10th round pick out of the University of Arkansas.
The Rangers are also expected to call up pitchers Guillermo Moscoso and Warner Madrigal, catcher Kevin Richardson and infielder Esteban German. Pitchers Brandon McCarthy and Eddie Guardado will be activated off the disabled list. Willie Eyre will likely be added later but he was optioned to Triple A Oklahoma City last week and has to wait ten days before he can be called up again.
