Rangers activate 2B Rougned Odor from 10-day disabled list, INF/OF Renato Núñez designated for assignment

Odor is in starting lineup for tonight's series opener in Houston

The Texas Rangers announced this afternoon that the club has activated second baseman Rougned Odor from the 10-day disabled list. To make room on the active roster for Odor, the team has designated infielder/outfielder Renato Núñez for assignment.
 
Odor was on the 10-day disabled list from April 10-May 10 with a left hamstring strain suffered in the first inning of his last game with Texas on April 9 against the Los Angeles Angels. He played 5 games with Double-A Frisco (2) and Triple-A Round Rock (3) on injury rehabilitation assignment, going 3-for-17 with a double and 2 RBI. He went 1-for-5 with an RBI as the designated hitter for Round Rock last night against New Orleans. Odor has batted .206 (7-34) with no home runs and 4 RBI in 11 games/starts for the Rangers this season, going 6-for-18 in his last 6 games with Texas.
 
Núñez batted .167 (6-36) with one home run and 2 RBI in 13 games/11 starts for Texas after he was received on a waiver claim from the Oakland Athletics on April 15. The Rangers have 7 days to trade, release, or outright Núñez to the minor leagues.
 
With today's moves, the Rangers have 38 players on the club's major league roster, along with 6 players on the 60-day disabled list.
