KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) -The Texas Rangers put outfielder Brad Wilkerson on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday because of a pulled right hamstring.
Wilkerson left Tuesday night's game against Tampa Bay in the fifth inning after hurting himself running out a double. He was hitting .250 with six home runs and 20 RBIs.
The Rangers purchased the contract of outfielder Kevin Mahar from Triple-A Oklahoma and transferred pitcher John Rheinecker (strained back) from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list. Mahar hit .349 with one homer and four RBIs in 11 games with Oklahoma.
Texas had considered calling up outfielder Marlon Byrd from the minors, but he hurt his hamstring this week.
