Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - The Texas Rangers have activated catcher A.J. Pierzynski from the 15-day disabled list.

Pierzynski had been sidelined with a strained right oblique, just his second trip to the DL in his 15-year career.

The 36-year old was hitting .263 with four homers and 11 RBI in 26 games this season. He is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday when Texas plays Oakland.

To make room on the active roster, Texas optioned catcher Robinson Chirinos and pitcher Josh Lindblom to Triple-A Round Rock.
