  • Mitch Garver Activated From Injured List Thursday

    The Texas Rangers activated catcher/first baseman Mitch Garver (elbow) from the 10-day injured list ahead of Thursday night's game against the Houston Astros. Outfielder Nick Solak was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. Garver has been hampered by a right elbow injury and he has still yet to fully heal. He will be strictly used as a designated hitter for the time being as he hasn't been cleared to start throwing the ball. Jonah Heim will remain the team's starting catcher with Sam Huff as the backup. Over 22 games so far this year, Garver is slashing .205/.292/.346 with three home runs, eight RBI and seven runs.

  • Mitch Garver To Be Strictly DH Upon Return

    Texas Rangers catcher/designated hitter Mitch Garver (elbow) was sent out on a rehab assignment at Double-A Frisco on Tuesday. He will be exclusively serving as designated hitter during his rehab assignment and he will have that same role when he returns to the Rangers. Garver is dealing with a right elbow injury and he still isn't throwing the ball, so he can't play either catcher or first base for now. It's still unclear at this point exactly when he'll be back with the Rangers, but it sounds as if his return is close. The 31-year-old is slashing .205/.292/.346 with three home runs, eight RBI and seven runs over 22 games on the year.

  • Mitch Garver To Begin Rehab In Double-A Tuesday

    Texas Rangers catcher Mitch Garver (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Frisco on Tuesday. Garver injured his elbow last week and there was initially some speculation that it was a serious injury but he seems to have avoided a lengthy stay on the sidelines. For now, Garver is slated to serve as the DH for Frisco on Tuesday and it is unclear whether he will be catching at any point. Garver is hitting .205 with three homers, seven runs, and eight RBI over 78 at-bats in 2022.

  • Mitch Garver Lands On Injured List

    Texas Rangers catcher Mitch Garver was placed on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday with a flexor sprain. In a corresponding move, the Rangers recalled catcher Sam Huff from Triple-A Round Rock. Garver was out of the lineup the last two games, and now he'll miss at least the next 10 days. The 31-year-old veteran backstop was hitting just .205 with three home runs and eight RBI in his first 89 plate appearances for Texas. While he won't hit for a high average, there is some pop there, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect a repeat of his 31-homer campaign in 2019. With Garver on the shelf for at least the next 10 days, Jonah Heim will serve as the starting backstop, with Huff backing him up.
