Several Rangers MiLB moves this weekend...Boggs to Texas?

--Jeff saw Brandon Boggs leaving the RedHawks game today before the game with his bags.  That usually means the player in question is being called up (or sent down but not likely in Brandon's case) or at least that he was summoned to Texas to be in a "holding pattern" if needed.  The Rangers are off today, so I guess we find out tomorrow.  The likely scenario to me is that Josh Hamilton lands back on the DL after receiving his MRI results though Jeff speculates that it could actually be that Chris Davis is sent down and Brandon activated in case the Rangers need an extra outfielder because Hamilton is still hurting, but not bad enough to land on the DL.  Either way, it will be interesting to see what happens.

--In other moves, Adam Fox was sent back down to Frisco and Omar Poveda and Emerson Frostad joined (or in Emerson's case, rejoined) the Hawks.  Luis Mendoza was placed on the DL with strep and German Duran was activated.  Bryan Corey was sent to the AZL Rangers on paper, but actually remains with the RedHawks.  Max Ramirez landed on OKC's DL and Justin Smoak landed on Frisco's DL.

--Julio Borbon was off today after injuring his hamstring on a fully laid out catch attempt yesterday in the 9th inning.  He was apparently available to play if "absolutely necessary".  Since Brandon was gone (though officially listed as an "available player") Royce Huffman landed in LF today.

--The Rangers are expected to activate Vincente Padilla tomorrow with Guillermo Moscoso likely to head back to Frisco.  I'm not sure if he goes back into Frisco's rotation which includes the newly activated Michael Schlact and Jared Hyatt.
