Rangers activate Danny Santana from IL

Rangers

Denver, Colo. — The Texas Rangers announced prior to Sunday’s series finale against the Colorado Rockies that the club has activated infielder/outfielder Danny Santana (#38) from the 10-day Injured List.  To make room for Santana on the active 28-man roster, the team has placed left-handed pitcher Brett Martin on the 10-day Injured List, retroactive to August 13, with left rotator cuff inflammation.

Santana was placed on the 10-day Injured List on August 2, retroactive to July 30, with a right forearm strain.  He will be seeking his first game action since July 28 vs. Arizona.  Santana is on the road trip with the team and has been progressing in his rehabilitation program over the past several days.  He started each of the Rangers’ first 4 games, going 1-for-17, but has not played since Tuesday vs. Arizona.  The 2019 Texas Rangers Player of the Year, Santana set career highs with 28 home runs and 81 RBI last season.

Martin has no record and a 1.93 ERA (1 ER/4.2 IP) over 5 relief appearances for the Rangers this season.  He began the campaign on the Injured List from July 16-27 and did not return in time to appear in Summer Camp intrasquads.  Martin last pitched on August 12 vs. Seattle, and the first date he would be eligible to return is August 23.

After today’s transactions, the Rangers remain at the 40-man limit on the Major League roster.
