The Texas Rangers announced 12 roster moves on Tuesday, including the demotion of Mike Olt, to trim the major league roster to 46 players.
Brandon Snyder homered and had a career-high six RBIs against his former team, and the Texas Rangers beat Baltimore 14-3 Monday night to end the Orioles’ five-game winning streak.
Yu Darvish kept wriggling out of trouble in five-plus innings, Josh Hamilton homered among his three hits and the Texas Rangers beat the Minnesota Twins 6-2 on Saturday.
Craig Gentry, a candidate to be the Rangers’ starting center fielder, and first baseman Mitch Moreland are among the last eight players who have agreed to 2012 contracts with Texas.
Terms of the deal announced Tuesday weren’t released. The 25-year-old infielder was taken 13th overall by the Orioles in the 2005 draft.
