Texas Rangers transactions: Hunter Pence has been placed on the 10 day injured list with a strained right groin, the team has announced. Willie Calhoun, who had been on a rehab assignment with AAA Nashville, has been activated from the injured list to take his place on the 25 man roster.

This is the move we all expected after Pence pulled up lame in yesterday’s game. Calhoun had started his rehab assignment on Thursday and had appeared ready to go, and we had been discussing the dilemma the Rangers faced with the roster once he returned, so this solves that issue for now. The Rangers will have another tough call to make later this week, when Joey Gallo is slated to return.
