Rangers Injury Update: Jim Adduci placed on concussion list

By on 8/29/2014 05:45:00 PM

Injuries continue to hit the Texas Rangers as Jim Adduci has been placed on the seven day concussion list after being involved in a rough collision.
In his absence the Rangers have called up Ryan Rua.

In 98 at-bats this season, Adduci has just 17 hits and a .173 batting average. He has really slumped through August where he has just a .77 batting average in 52 at-bats.

While the loss is not a major blow to the last place Rangers, they have been running out of able bodied players as it seems a new player adds his name to the disabled list each day.

Rau will make his major league debut tonight.  He ranks as the team's 19th best prospect according to  After hitting 32 home runs last season, he has smacked 18 long-balls this year through two levels.  He will now have a shot to see what he can do at the major league level.
