Transaction

Placed 1B/3B HERBERT PERRY on the 15-day Disabled List. Added infielder MANNY ALEXANDER to the 40-man roster and recalled him from AAA Oklahoma.

I'm surprised Perry lasted this long. Seemingly older than his 35 years and coming of knee and shoulder surgery, Perry looked dead in Spring Training. Instead, he played a passable lefty DH and very occasional corner infield. He becomes #13 on the DL with a strained calf. Alexander will get some Major League per-diem while watching Michael Young from the dugout. Not a bad arrangement. Alexander has no bat, leaving the Rangers without an obvious DH against lefties.
