The Rangers have announced the acquisition of Mike Carp off waivers from Boston.

Carp had been placed on waivers after Boston traded for Yoenis Cespedes on Thursday. Carp is hitting .198/.320/.279 this season so he'll fit right in. Carp can play some left field so perhaps this move was made to finally put Shin-Soo Choo on the DL and let him rest his ankle for the rest of the season.

The Rangers will haven't announced a corresponding 25-man move yet. We'll keep you posted.
