ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Texas Rangers have purchased the contract of veteran right-hander Jerome Williams from Triple-A Round Rock.

Texas made the move Friday for Williams to start the opener of a home series against AL West-leading Oakland.

Williams will be the 52nd different player, and 31st pitcher, used by Texas this season.

To make room on the 25-man roster, rookie outfielder Jake Smolinski was put on the disabled list a bone bruise in his left foot. Left-hander Justin Marks was released to clear a 40-man spot.

Williams starts in place of Nick Tepesch, who gets an extra day of rest after having to pitch in the Rangers' 14-inning loss at the New York Yankees on Tuesday night. Tepesch starts Saturday against the Athletics.
