Alex Rios is back in the Rangers’ starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Rays for the first time since aggravating a right ankle injury on a slide into home plate Sunday afternoon at Minute Maid Park.

Rios initially sprained his right ankle on July 19, but he was able to avoid a disabled list stint and is now closer to full health after getting two full days of rest. The 33-year-old outfielder cleared revocable waivers early last week and could be moved to a contending team before the August 31 waiver trade deadline passes.

Rios is batting .293/.323/.414 with four home runs and 16 stolen bases through 112 games this season for Texas. He’s making $12.5 million this year and holds a $13.5 million club option for the 2015 campaign.
