T.R. Sullivan on pending roster moves

T.R. Sullivan says the Rangers expect to activate Nelson Cruz tomorrow, with Ryan Garko being optioned, and then activate Joaquin Arias over the weekend, with Craig Gentry being optioned.

I still don't really understand why a team would want Joaquin Arias to be part of its four man bench when it already has Andres Blanco, since the list of things Arias does better than Blanco seems to be limited to "hit singles," and there's not much call for a pinch hitter with no power or plate discipline on the team.

On the other hand, someone has to be the 25th man.
