Rangers activate Harden, Treanor

The Texas Rangers have activated right-hander Rich Harden and catcher Matt Treanor from the 15-day disabled list.

Harden came off in time to start Monday night for the AL West-leading Rangers in the opener of a four-game series against AL Central-leading Minnesota.

To make room on the roster, catcher Taylor Teagarden was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City and right-hander Scott Feldman was put on the 15-day DL for the first time in his career with a bone bruise in his right knee.

Harden was out with right shoulder tendinitis, his second DL stint this season. He struck out 10 in a rehab start for Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Treanor strained a right knee ligament July 23 against the Los Angeles Angels.
