Spring Training 2012: Craig Gentry Hopes To Return Sunday

Craig Gentry, who is competing to win the starting center field gig for the Rangers, hopes to return to action on Sunday after injuring his left wrist during Tuesday's exhibition game against the Indians. Gentry injured himself diving for a flyball, but landed awkwardly on his left wrist. Luckily for Gentry, test results revealed that Gentry only suffered a sprain.

Gentry is one of the three options that Ron Washington is considering starting in center this year for Texas. Julio Borbon and Josh Hamilton are the other options, though Hamilton's defense in center is below average.

It's also possible, albeit unlikely, that Leonys Martin will eventually force himself into the picture later this year, but Washington has stated that he thinks Martin needs another full year in the minors before he's ready.

Regardless, Gentry is lucky that he'll likely only miss four games due to the injury. At the time, it looked like it could have been much worse.
