The Texas Rangers’ injury woes continue as rookie outfielder Wyatt Langford was put on the 10-day injury list, retroactively to May 5 with a right hamstring injury.

The Rangers called up Jonathan Ornelas from Triple-A Round Rock as a replacement.

Ornelas has hit .278 with two home runs and 11 RBIs in 24 games with Round Rock.
