ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -The Texas Rangers activated Kevin Millwood from the 15-day disabled list before his scheduled start Monday in the finale of a four-game series against the Los Angeles Angels.
Millwood missed two starts after going on the DL with a strained left hamstring. The right-hander was 2-3 with a 5.88 ERA in six starts before the injury.
To make room for Millwood, the Rangers optioned right-hander Mike Wood back to Triple-A Oklahoma. Wood, who was brought up from Oklahoma on May 1, made three starts while Millwood was out.
Wood had a strong outing in his first start against the New York Yankees but was hit hard by the Yankees five days later. In his last start Sunday, he gave up three home runs and had a no-decision in the Rangers' 7-6 victory against the Angels. He was 0-1 with a 7.02 ERA in four appearances.
