The Texas Rangers this afternoon announced that the club has placed outfielder Delino DeShields on the 10-day disabled list with a fracture of the tip of his right middle finger. The team has recalled infielder/outfielder Drew Robinson from Triple-A Round Rock.

DeShields sustained the injured finger on an attempted bunt in the seventh inning of Thursday night's series opener against the Los Angeles Angels. The first date he would be eligible to return is August 27. DeShields was also on the disabled list from March 31-April 21 with a fractured hamate bone in his left hand, and he was on the seven-day concussion list from August 4-11. DeShields has batted .204 with two home runs, 22 RBIs, and a team-high 18 stolen bases over 85 games for the Rangers this season.

Robinson will be in his third stint with the Rangers this season, also Opening Day-May 20 and August 4-11. He has batted .186 with one home run and five RBIs in 32 games with Texas in 2018. He has spent the balance of the campaign with Round Rock, batting .303 (64-211) with 10 home runs, 28 RBIs, and a .948 OPS figure in 53 games.

After these transactions, the Rangers remain at the 40-man limit on the Major League roster, along with five players on the 60-day disabled list.
