The Rangers have been operating with a three man bench for a while, and effectively had a two man bench yesterday, with Prince Fielder unavailable.

In an effort to address that problem, they have recalled outfielder Daniel Robertson from AAA, and have optioned pitcher Miles Mikolas back to Round Rock.

That gives the Rangers a four man bench and a seven man bullpen, though Fielder is not expected to be available today, either.
