Rangers first baseman Kyle Blanks has been sent to Triple-A Round Rock to begin a rehab assignment. Blanks has been on the disabled list since June 18 with tendinitis in his Achilles. 

Blanks has only appeared in 18 games for the Rangers this season, after missing previous time on the DL due to a pilonidal cyst. It is not yet known when the Rangers expect Blanks to be activated and return to the lineup.
