Rangers call up Alex Cora. Designate Joaquin Arias for assignment
The Rangers have called up infielder Alex Cora from Triple A Oklahoma City. To make room for him, infielder Joaquin Arias has been designated for assignment.
Cora was released by the Mets earlier this season and signed by the Rangers last week to a Triple A Oklahoma City contract. He played in six games at Oklahoma City and was hitting .182 with four hits in 22 at-bats. He was hitting .207 for the Mets at the time he was released.
Arias was hitting .276 in 50 games this season for the Rangers. They have ten days to release him, trade him or get him through outright waivers.
