The Texas Rangers activated outfielder Joey Gallo from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and said he'll start the series opener in Detroit, batting fifth as the centerfielder.
The Rangers said Gallo fills an open spot on the active roster that was created when left-handed pitcher Kyle Bird was optioned to Triple-A Nashville following Sunday’s game against the Chicago White Sox.
The game will be the first for the outfielder since June 1 when he was sidelined for three weeks with a left oblique strain.
