ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- The Rangers have activated first baseman Mitch Moreland from the disabled list and optioned outfielder Leonys Martin to Triple-A Round Rock.
Moreland was in the lineup for Monday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels. He has been out since June 19 when he strained his left hamstring running out a ground ball in San Diego.
Moreland is hitting .272 with 10 home runs and 25 RBIs in 55 games. He played in five games on rehabilitation stints with Round Rock and Double-A Frisco.
Martin hit .189 in 15 games with the Rangers.

For the first time since he joined the Texas Rangers, Hamilton was booed noticeably at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The boos came following a pair of strikeouts Friday in Texas' 9-5 loss to the Chicago White Sox. Hamilton went 0-for-4 to extend his current drought to 0-for-12....

In a mostly unsurprising move on Monday, Geovany Soto was traded to the Texas Rangers less than a day before the trade deadline. Midway through the Cubs' opener of their three game homestand with the Pittsburgh Pirates, the 29-year-old catcher was reportedly dealt to Texas for minor league pitcher Jacob Brigham. Soto has been struggling lately, batting only .199 with six homers...

Everyone in baseball knows how loaded the Texas Rangers' farm system is. So, whenever trade talks are initiated with them, there is an elite group of names that are going to immediately be brought up. But, even in landing a very high quality starter in Ryan Dempster, Texas did not have to surrender any of their elite prospects.
