Jeff Baker is headed to the disabled list with a strained right thumb. The Texas Rangers were hoping to avoid a DL stint for their utility player, but that clearly wasn't an option.

The Rangers also optioned first baseman Chris McGuiness back to Triple A Round Rock, opening spots for left-handed reliever Joseph Ortiz and catcher Robinson Chirinos.
