ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Struggling Rangers center fielder Delino DeShields has been optioned to Triple-A Round Rock.
The Rangers made the move before Tuesday night's game against Oakland. They recalled left-hander Brandon Mann from Triple-A to add another arm to their bullpen a day after using two position players to pitch for the first time in team history, in a 15-3 loss to the Athletics.
