Before Tuesday's game against the Colorado Rockies, 

The Texas Rangers activated pitcher Dennis Santana from the injured list.

Santana has a 5.06 ERA in 46 appearances in the majors this season,

though that doesn't really tell the full story.

In his first 33 outings, going through July 4, Santana had a 1.44 ERA.

After 4 July, after more than 13 outings, Santana had an ERA of 17.36,

then was placed on the injured list with an ankle sprain.

Santana made two scoreless rehab appearances for Round Rock before becoming active.

As for Alexey, he gave Texas a scoreless 2.1 in yesterday's game,

and has now been sent back to Round Rock. 

Alexey has done better since recently being transferred to a respite role,

and he has a good chance of returning to the majors sometime in September.
