Jeff Baker headed to disabled list; Joseph Ortiz, Robinson Chirinos recalled

Jeff Baker is headed to the disabled list with a strained right thumb.

The Texas Rangers were hoping to avoid a DL stint for their utility player, but that clearly wasn't an option. Baker, who was injured while an intense high-five with a teammate, is retroactive to last Thursday.

The Rangers also optioned first baseman Chris McGuiness back to Triple A Round Rock, opening spots for left-handed reliever Joseph Ortiz and catcher Robinson Chirinos.
