  • The Rangers have purchased the contract of first baseman Chris McGuiness from Triple-A Round Rock and created a spot for him on the 40-man roster by moving Colby Lewis to the 60-day DL, according to a team press release.  McGuiness will fill in for Mitch Moreland, who was put on the 15-day DL in a corresponding move.  The 25-year-old McGuiness is a left-handed hitter who was acquired by Texas from Boston as part of the Jarrod Saltalamacchia trade in 2010.  McGuiness has an .858 OPS at Triple-A this season.
