Pedro Figueroa to the disabled list, Dan Robertson acquired

Thearon W. Henderson

The Rangers have acquired outfielder Dan Robertson from the San Diego Padres, and have put pitcher Pedro Figueroa on the disabled list

When Pedro Figueroa left yesterday's game holding his elbow after just one pitch, it looked likely that a stint on the disabled list was in his future.

That happened today, as the Rangers have put Figueroa on the 15 day d.l. due  to elbow soreness, per John Blake on Twitter.

To replace Figueroa on the 25 man roster, the Rangers have acquired outfielder Dan Robertson from the San Diego Padres, also per Blake.

Robertson, 28, was a 33rd round draft pick of the Padres in the 2008 draft, and has been in AAA since the 2012 season.  He has a career .295/.371/.394 line in AAA, and has played all three outfield positions (the plurality being in center).  Robertson's B-R page is here.

The Rangers' 40 man roster was at 39, so no move was necessary to open a 40 man roster spot to add Robertson.

Presumably, the Rangers will either option Robertson when Matt Harrison is activated this weekend, or put Shin-Soo Choo on the disabled list to make room for Harrison, depending on the state of Choo's ankle.
