CLEVELAND – The Texas Rangers activated outfielder Julio Borbon from the disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Round Rock.

Borbon, the Rangers’ starting center fielder when the season began, had been out since mid-May because of a pulled hamstring. He completed a minor league rehabilitation assignment this week.

The emergence of Endy Chavez, who was batting .415 going into Friday night’s game against Cleveland, pushed Borbon out of a roster spot.

TIGERS: Third baseman Brandon Inge was placed on the disabled list because of mononucleosis, and catcher Omir Santos was recalled from Triple-A Toledo.

Inge is hitting .211 with one homer and 12 RBI in 52 games. Tigers Manager Jim Leyland said he was unsure if Inge’s illness has affected his play, saying: “I don’t think he’s been himself for a while, but I don’t know if that has anything to do with it or not. I don’t really understand.”

WHITE SOX: Paul Konerko was a late scratch from the lineup against Detroit after having a minor medical procedure to dislodge a loose fragment in his left wrist.

ANGELS: Dan Haren, whose streak of 214 consecutive starts is the longest among active major league pitchers, has been scratched from tonight’s game against the New York Yankees because of lower-back tightness.

BRAVES: Rookie outfielder Jordan Schafer was taken to a hospital for X-rays after he fouled a bunt off his face against the New York Mets.

PHILLIES: Philadelphia optioned John Mayberry to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to make room for outfielder Shane Victorino, who was activated from the disabled list.

CARDINALS: St. Louis purchased the contract of infielder Matt Carpenter from Triple-A Memphis and recalled first baseman Mark Hamilton from its top farm club.

Rookie right-hander Maikel Cleto was optioned to Double-A Springfield and infielder Pete Kozma was optioned to Memphis.

ROYALS: Kansas City put right-hander Sean O’Sullivan on the 15-day disabled list because of biceps tendinitis and recalled Jesse Chavez from Triple-A Omaha.

METS: New York promoted right-handed reliever Manny Acosta from Triple-A Buffalo.
