Rangers Injury Update: Jim Adduci moves rehab to Triple-A

By on 7/18/2014 11:15:00 AM

The Texas Rangers had a dismal first half of the 2014 season, sitting at 38-57 and 21 games out in the American League West. A pitching staff that is 29th in the league in ERA has been a big reason the Rangers find themselves in depths of the American League. Injuries have also been a key factor, as 14 Rangers are currently on the disabled list. There is good news on Jim Adduci, as he has moved to Triple-A in his rehab from a fractured left pinky.

Adduci, who has been on the disabled list since April 20 with a fractured pinky he suffered when sliding into second base, has moved his rehab to Triple-A. He was initially expected to miss four weeks and that timetable has long since passed, as his recovery has been very slow.

An update on Adduci, according to the official site of the Round Rock Express, is that Adduci played first base and hit third  for the Express last night against the Iowa Cubs.  He went 1-for-2 with a walk.

Adduci was drafted by the Miami Marlins in 2003 and made his Major League debut as a 28-year old last season.  He batted .258 in 31 at bats last season and is 6-for-13 with two doubles and three RBI in nine games this season.
