The Texas Rangers have activated Shin-Soo Choo from the disabled list, and he is leading off tonight

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers have activated outfielder Shin-Soo Choo from the disabled list, and to make room for him on the 25 man roster, have optioned relief pitcher Dario Alvarez to AAA Round Rock.  The Rangers had sent Hanser Alberto down yesterday when Jeremy Jeffress reported and was added to the active roster, so this gets the Rangers back to having an 7 man bullpen and a 4 man bench.

The roster:

Choo -- RF

Desmond -- CF

Beltran -- DH

Beltre -- 3B

Odor -- 2B

Lucroy -- C

Rua -- 1B

Elvis -- SS

DeShields -- LF

A.J. Griffin is on the mound for Texas, going up against lefty Wade Miley.
