Texas Rangers rumors: The return of J.P. Arencibia

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

J.P. Arencibia is back, and he's playing first base

Texas Rangers rumors:  J.P. Arencibia is a Texas Ranger.  Again.

Per John Blake on Twitter, the Rangers have purchased the contract of J.P. Arencibia from AAA Round Rock, and have activated Geovany Soto from the disabled list:

The Rangers now have four catchers on their 25 man roster -- Arencibia, Soto, Robinson Chirinos, and Chris Gimenez.  Blake says that Arencibia will be playing first base, so that makes Pena expendable.

I am going to just assume that Jon Daniels saw this tweet from earlier today:

And figured, well, if Pena's not hitting any better than Arencibia, I might as well bring Arencibia back up.
