Nunez (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Monday.

Nunez will join the Rangers' active roster just one day after being claimed off waivers from the A's. The 24-year-old has been sidelined all season with a hamstring injury, but he's ready to make his 2018 major-league debut after getting through a seven-game minor-league rehab assignment. Nunez went 10-for-28 (.357) during his stint with Triple-A Nashville. He'll take the roster spot of Ryan Rua and could immediately take his place as the Rangers' primary left fielder, although he has been much better in his career against lefties than righties, and may therefore ultimately end up on the short side of a platoon.
