CLEVELAND (AP)  The Texas Rangers have activated outfielder Julio Borbon from the disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Round Rock.

Borbon, the Rangers’ starting center fielder when the season began, had been out since mid-May because of a pulled hamstring. He was batting .270 with 10 runs scored and six stolen bases in 32 games. Borbon completed a minor league rehabiliation assignment this week.

Borbon started 137 games and batted .276 last season as Texas won the AL championship.

The emergence of Endy Chavez, who was batting .415 going into Friday night’s game against Cleveland, pushed Borbon out of a roster spot. Chavez was 4 for 4, tying a career high in hits, in Thursday’s 7-4 win over the Indians.
