The Texas Rangers today announced that the club has placed infielder Hanser Alberto on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain and purchased the contract of catcher Carlos Pérez from Triple-A Round Rock. To make room for Perez on the 40-man roster, the team has also recalled right-handed pitcher Nick Gardewine and placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a right forearm strain.
Alberto, 25, was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday for his third major league stint this season and went 0-for-1 as a pinch-hitter in last night's game against the Giants. He has gone 1-for-12 in 6 games/3 starts for the Rangers in 2018, spending the bulk of the year at Triple-A. The first date Alberto would be eligible to return is September 4.
Pérez will be in his second big league stint with the Rangers this season. He has batted .159 (10-63) with one home run and 3 RBI over 24 major league contests with Atlanta and Texas in 2018. He has also combined to bat .305 (29-95) with 6 homers and 18 RBI over 26 minor league games with Frisco (AA) and Round Rock this season. Originally received by Texas on a waiver claim from the Atlanta Braves on May 2, Perez was initially added to the 25-man roster on May 3. He was on the club's 10-day disabled list from June 16-July 15 with a right ankle sprain before he was activated and assigned outright to Triple-A Round Rock on July 16.
Gardewine has allowed 2 runs over 3 games/5.0 innings in relief for the Rangers this season, also posting a 2-1 record with a 7.30 ERA (10 ER/12.1 IP) in 12 relief outings for Round Rock.
The Rangers remain at the 40-man limit on the major league roster, along with 6 players on the 60-day disabled list.
