Rangers adding Cruz for Garko
The Rangers are adding Nelson Cruz and dropping Ryan Garko
The Rangers will activate Cruz off the disabled list for Friday’s game against the Blue Jays.
Garko will be optioned to Triple A Oklahoma City and then put on outright waivers. The Rangers want to give Garko a chance to see if he can be picked up by another team. If not, he’ll be assigned outright to Oklahoma City and play there.
The Rangers will make another move Saturday. Infielder Joaquin Arias will be activated off the disabled list and Craig Gentry will be optioned to Oklahoma City.
