 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -Former closer Akinori Otsuka was activated from the disabled list on Monday by the Texas Rangers.
Otsuka, who had 32 saves in 2006 before the Rangers signed Eric Gagne, missed half of the 2007 season because of a forearm injury. He ended this season on the 60-day disabled list after going 2-1 with a 2.51 ERA and four saves in 34 appearances.
Texas also activated right-hander Josh Rupe (elbow) and shortstop Joaquin Arias (shoulder), who missed the entire season.
Pitcher Willie Eyre was activated, sent outright to the minors and agreed to a minor league contract. The right-hander, 4-6 with a 5.16 ERA, had elbow ligament replacement surgery in August and might not pitch in the majors until 2009.
Right-hander Mike Wood, catcher Chris Stewart and outfielder Kevin Mahar also were sent outright to the minors. Wood declined the assignment and elected to become a free agent. The Rangers have not determined which rosters the others will be reassigned to.
