The Ranger activated reliever Willie Eyre from the disabled list to give the team another arm in the bullpen. To make room for Eyre, the Rangers optioned outfielder Brandon Boggs to Oklahoma City. The Rangers will go with an eight-man bullpen and a three-man bench for the weekend. To make a spot for Eyre on the 40-man roster, the Rangers put former Paschal and TCU player German Duran on release waivers.
