The Texas Rangers have placed second baseman Rougned Odor on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to April 11, with a right knee sprain, the team announced Saturday.

In a corresponding move, the Rangers called up infielder/outfielder Danny Santana from Triple-A Nashville.

Right-handed pitcher Edinson Volquez also was transferred from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list to open up a 40-man roster spot for Santana.
