Byrd leaves with hip injury
Rangers outfielder Marlon Byrd left Tuesday’s game with what was reported as a hip capsule strain on his right side. He injured himself running to first base on a grounder to short in the first inning, falling face first at the end.
He was replaced by Craig Gentry in center field.
Byrd is listed as “day-today” but the Rangers only have five games left. The possibility exists that Byrd could watch the next five sitting next to Josh Hamilton but that is still unknown.
