The Texas Rangers won Monday night against the New York Yankees, however they lost a little bit as well. According to T.R. Sullivan from the Rangers lost Geovany Soto and Jake Smolinski. Both players are hoping their injuries are not serious. Also, Jim Adduci was activated from the disabled list on Monday.

Geovany Soto
Soto left the game with tightness in his right groin. He had a game-tying single, but he felt the muscle tighten when he was trotting home after Shin-Soo Choo singled to put the Rangers up 4-2. He was replaced by Robinson Chirinos, who has done a lot of catching this season when Soto has been injured.

Soto had this to say,
Hopefully it is just a little tightness."
Jake Smolinski
Smolinski helped to start the rally against starting pitcher Shane Greene. He reached base on an infield single, but earlier in the at bat he fouled a pitch off his left foot. He did not bat in the ninth spot later in the game because his foot was so sore. He underwent X-Rays that came back negative. He is day-to-day.

Smolinski said,
I was hoping it would get better, but instead it got worse."
Jim Adduci
Adduci was activated from the disabled list on Monday and was added to the lineup against the Yankees. He will be used at both outfield and first base according to manager Ron Washington. On April 17 he suffered a fracture in his finger on his left hand. He was sent on a rehab assignment and played five games before re-injuring his finger, which doubled the time he missed. To make room, the Rangers moved Matt West to Triple-A Round Rock.
