Craig Gentry Suffered Sprain Wrist In Tuesday's Game

If you were watching Tuesday’s game between the Rangers and Indians live, then you’re probably a bit relieved. X-Rays came back negative on Craig Gentry’s left wrist, as the center fielder sprained it while trying to dive to make a catch off of a Jack Hannahan fly ball in the third inning.

The injury looked worse than a sprain at the time, as Gentry immediately went to his arm in pain. Texas is listing Gentry as day-to-day with the injury.

It’s certainly a setback for Gentry, as he was vying to win the starting center field gig for the Rangers. Gentry has been having a rough spring with the stick, as he’s just 1-for-13 at the plate with just one walk.

The door is now open for Julio Borbon to claim the starting center field job for the Rangers. Borbon is 4-for-12 so far in the spring, not that spring stats actually mean anything. Still, Borbon has apparently impressed early on in Rangers camp, and might be able to use this opportunity to take hold of the starting job.
