Rangers outfielder Alex Rios was forced to exit today’s game against the Blue Jays in the first inning after he sprained his right ankle on a swing.
This sounds like a typical injury for the snake-bitten Rangers this season, but it appears that they dodged a bullet for once. The team announced that X-rays came back negative and he’s considered day-to-day.
Rios, 33, is batting .302/.330/.435 with four home runs, 42 RBI and 16 stolen bases over 96 games this season. He’s a potential trade candidate this month.
