Rangers reinstate 9 players from 60-day DL

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Texas Rangers have reinstated nine players from the 60-day disabled list.

Ace pitcher Yu Darvish and first baseman Prince Fielder were among the players reinstated Monday, giving the Rangers a full 40-man roster. Both are expected to be ready for spring training.

Darvish's last game was Aug. 9 before he was sidelined by elbow inflammation. Fielder, the slugger acquired last November, played in only 42 games after neck surgery.

Outfielder Shin-Soo Choo had operations late in the season for a bone spur in his left elbow and torn cartilage in his left ankle.

Also put back on the roster were left-handers Matt Harrison and Martin Perez, right-handers Alexi Ogando and Tanner Scheppers, first baseman Mitch Moreland and infielder Jurickson Profar.
