ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -The Texas Rangers brought up outfielder David Murphy from Triple-A Oklahoma on Friday to fill the roster spot vacated by Jerry Hairston Jr.
Hairston was put on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday.
Murphy was acquired from Boston on last week in a four-player deal that sent closer Eric Gagne to the Red Sox and brought left-handed starter Kason Gabbard to Texas. Murphy spent most of the season at Triple-A Pawtucket before the trade. He hit .280 with nine home runs and 47 RBIs. He was 2-for-7 (.286) in Oklahoma.
In three games with Boston this season, Murphy was 1-for-2 with a triple. He is 6-for-24 (.250) with a homer and two RBIs in 23 career major league games.
