For the third time this spring, Texas Rangers’ outfielder Craig Gentry was forced to leave an exhibition game early for health reasons on Sunday.
In this latest instance, Gentry left the Rangers’ match-up with the Angels in the third inning with dehydration, after striking out in his only at-bat and having a wholly uneventful day in right field. He was replaced in the lineup by Conor Jackson.
Gentry was forced to leave Texas’ game with the White Sox on March 10 with a hamstring issue and, three days later, on March 13, he was forced to leave the team’s game against the Indians after suffering a sprained wrist. The latter of these injuries kept Gentry out of the lineup for a little under a week.
