Activated pitcher JEFF NELSON, pitcher ERASMO RAMIREZ, and 3B/DH HERBERT PERRY from the 15-day Disabled List. Added catcher KEN HUCKABY and infielder ANDY FOX to the 40-man roster and recalled them from AAA Oklahoma. Transferred pitcher MICKEY CALLAWAY from the 15-day to the 60-day DL.

Nelson could have returned sooner, but Texas wanted to wait until September 1 so that no one would have to leave to make room for Nelson. Huckaby and Fox are reinforcements. I suppose Huckaby allows for multiple pinch-hit attempts in the catcher's slot and Fox perhpas could pinch-run for someone, but that's the extent of their value. Callaway hits the 60-day DL for the second time in one season. He won't need surgery for his irritated rotator cuff but he definitely wasn't going to pitch again this year. Texas now has eight players on the 60-day Disabled List.
