Texas starting righty Ross to 10-day DL; C Nicholas recalled
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Rangers starter Tyson Ross has been put on the 10-day disabled list because of a blister on his right index finger.
Texas made the move Monday before the series opener against Miami to start a nine-game homestand. It was a day after Ross allowed five runs and four hits in 3 2/3 innings at Tampa Bay.
Ross (2-2, 7.52 ERA) has allowed 14 runs over seven innings his last two starts. Ross has started seven games for the Rangers since his mid-June debut after missing the start of the season while recovering from offseason surgery to correct Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.
Triple-A All-Star catcher Brett Nicholas was recalled from Round Rock.
Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos left Sunday's game with a sprained left ankle after a collision at the plate. X-rays were negative.
