Josh Hamilton was activated today from the DL and, as expected, Joey Gallo was optioned to AAA to make room for him.

Joey started off scorching hot causing a lot of talk about causing the Rangers to change their original declaration that he was definitely going to be sent down, but that start cooled and Joey demonstrated a lot of the strengths and weaknesses of his game.  All in all, I'm pretty pleased with Joey's initial dip of the toes into the ML pool and I'm looking forward to his taking what he's learned to AAA and his eventual call up in September.

Tonight's lineup:

2B Odor
RF Choo
DH Fielder
3B Beltre
LF Hamilton
1B Moreland
SS Andrus
CF Martin
C Chirinos
