Rangers hold off on activating Gentry
ARLINGTON -- The Rangers are holding off activating outfielder Craig Gentry off the disabled list because they want an extra reliever in the bullpen for at least a couple more days.

Gentry is on the seven-day DL because of a concussion he sustained in a July 24 game against the Blue Jays. He is currently on a rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Round Rock. Players on the seven-day DL are limited to a five-game rehab assignment, and Gentry has played three going into Monday.

By holding back until Wednesday, the Rangers can delay making a roster move involving a pitcher. The Rangers have to make a roster move on Tuesday, when Alexi Ogando returns from paternity leave but will likely drop one of their position players, either infielder Omar Quintanilla or catcher Taylor Teagarden.

On Wednesday, they will likely drop an extra reliever. Darren O'Day was called up when Ogando went on paternity leave, but that doesn't automatically mean he will be the one sent down. Both O'Day and Yoshinori Tateyama have options and Scott Feldman still has a blister on his right thumb.

Manager Ron Washington said the Rangers don't expect to put Feldman on the DL because of the blister, but it is an option.

"The blister is better, but we won't know until tomorrow," Washington said.
