Hoying will be called up by the Rangers imminently, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Hoying owned a .242/.336/.477 batting line powered by seven home runs for Triple-A Round Rock. He had an out clause in his contract that could have been exercised Monday, and the Rangers wanted to ensure they held onto the slugging outfielder. Most importantly, Hoying has the ability to play center field, and they'll need somebody else on their roster capable of covering ground with Carlos Gomez out for a month or more.
