From FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi comes word that the Rangers have activated Lance Berkman and Neftali Feliz from their respective disabled list stints as part of a collection of roster moves coinciding with the September 1 expansion of major league rosters.

Berkman has been sidelined since the first week of July with hip and knee issues and is expected to have a limited role out of the gate. The 37-year-old has made only 379 plate appearances since the beginning of the 2012 season and was said to be considering sudden retirement earlier this summer.

Feliz has been rehabbing from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery for the past 14 months. He’ll be used as a reliever through the end of the 2013 regular season and playoffs, but the talented 25-year-old right-hander should be given the opportunity to pitch his way back into a rotation spot next spring.

Texas (79-56) is currently two games up on Oakland (77-58) in the American League West standings.

    ^^^^BBBBAAHAHAHAHA!!!! Pretty sure you choked against the Rangers on their two trips to the series.

    No the rangers were just better teams those years we didnt choke. And those years they beat us they got swept by the giants and lost when they had it won twice in game 6 against the cards. Not to mention last year when they blew a 3 game lead with 3 games to go then didnt bother to show up for the wild card game. I would call that choking pretty hard.

    I’m surprised nobody brought up to “drunknbflo” that the 2004 ALCS might have counted as a choke job. Hard to do worse than lose a series when up 3-0.

    Berkman and Feliz were disappointed coming of the DL because during their time off they got to put eye liner on each other and give each other blow jobs. All Ranger fans felt sympathy as they enjoy these kinds of things.

      Oh, my mistake. Can you tell me what straight people like so that I may adjust my interests accordingly?
