Gentry slated to make return on Monday
ARLINGTON -- The Rangers plan on activating outfielder Craig Gentry off the disabled list on Monday. He has been sidelined for two weeks after sustaining a concussion sliding head-first into second base during a July 24 game against the Blue Jays.

Gentry, going into Sunday's game, was 2-for-8 with a double in the first two of three medical rehabilitation assignment games at Triple-A Round Rock. He has played in 39 games with the Rangers and is hitting .265 with 14 runs scored and 12 stolen bases while splitting time in a platoon situation with Endy Chavez in center field. Despite his limited playing time, he is third on the Rangers with 12 stolen bases, and has not been thrown out once.

The Rangers will have to make room on the 25-man roster for Gentry and one option could be infielder Omar Quintanilla, who has only played in four games since being recalled from Triple-A on July 8. He will have to clear outright waivers before being sent back to Round Rock.
