Rangers put Blanco on DL, bring up Quintanilla

The Texas Rangers have placed utility infielder Andres Blanco on

the 15-day disabled list with a stress fracture in his lower

back.

Texas made the move before Friday night’s game against Oakland,

and purchased the contract of infielder Omar Quintanilla from

Triple-A Round Rock.

To make room for Quintanilla on the 40-man roster, the Rangers

transferred right-hander Scott Feldman to the 60-day disabled list.

Feldman is still eligible for activation since he hasn’t pitched

this year while recovering from offseason right knee surgery.

Texas also announced that right-hander Dave Bush cleared

unconditional release waivers and is a free agent.

Blanco is hitting .223 with two homers in 24 games this

season.
