■ Rangers place Kinsler on DL (mlb.com)
Second baseman Ian Kinsler (03) and relief pitcher Jason Grilli were placed on the 15-day disabled list to make room for relief pitchers Neftali Feliz and Doug Mathis (05) on the 25-man roster.

Kinsler's move was retroactive to July 29. He was suffering from a strained left hamstring that hadn't improved over the last three days.
The Rangers were hoping to avoid placing Kinsler on the DL, but Daniels didn't want Kinsler to feel pressured to come back before being completely healed. He is eligible to return Aug. 13. Kinsler was hitting .157 in July.

Mathis was optioned to Triple-A prior to Wednesday's game. He was pulled from a Triple-A start on Saturday and instead pitched one perfect inning.
