He has been sidelined since Aug. 16 with a strained left hamstring and will be activated on Monday in Kansas City. That is the first day he is eligible to be activated.
The Rangers also announced that pitcher Dustin Nippert will pitch for Triple A Oklahoma City on Friday. He has been out since July 20 after getting hit on the head by a live drive in Detroit.
