Rangers place RHP Doug Fister on 10-day disabled list, recall INF Hanser Alberto from Round Rock

Fister exited start on Friday with right knee injury

The Texas Rangers today announced that the club has placed right-handed pitcher Doug Fister on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Saturday, with right knee strain. The team has also recalled infielder Hanser Alberto from Triple-A Round Rock.
 
Fister left his start on Friday versus Houston with right knee soreness after making one pitch in the top of the 6th inning. He has a 1-7 record with a 4.50 ERA (33 ER/66.0 IP) over 12 games/starts with Texas this season, receiving what would be the 5th-lowest run support average (3.14 runs of support per 9 innings) in the American League if he qualified. Fister was also on the disabled list from April 10-24 with a right hip strain. The first date he would be eligible to return is June 19.
 
Alberto will be in his second stint with the Rangers this season, as he went 1-for-8 in 3 games/starts for the club during his first stint from May 15-June 1. He has spent the balance of the season at Triple-A Round Rock, batting .315 (45-143) with a home run and 19 RBI in 42 games for the Express.
 
With these moves, the Rangers remain at the 40-player limit on the club's major league roster, along with 5 players on the 60-day disabled list.
