Activated pitcher MICKEY CALLAWAY from the 60-day DL. Placed 3B/DH HERBERT PERRY on the 15-day DL. Tranferred pitcher RICARDO RODRIGUEZ from the 15-day to the 60-day DL.

Mickey Callaway's return bolsters an already strong Ranger rotation. Oh, not really. As with Regilio, Wasdin, Bacsik, Bierbrodt, and Jim Umbarger, Texas will pray for five non-catastrophic innings from Callway's surgically enhanced arm. So far in August, Texas has 50 innings of sub-2.00 ERA from the bullpen, 20 innings of 1.33 ERA from Ryan Drese, and a 6.44 ERA from the other starters. Perry's sore knee buys him a few more days of service time; Perry himself acknowledged he might be released.
