Rangers outfielder Carlos Gomez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring, Rangers executive vice president of communications John Blake announced on Monday. Gomez is expected to miss four to six weeks. The Rangers will make a corresponding roster move on Tuesday.

Gomez, 31, suffered the injury during Sunday’s game against the Athletics. He hits the sidelines batting .246/.331/.423 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 164 plate appearances.

Delino DeShields will likely shift to center field while Gomez is out and Ryan Rua will get starts in left field. Jared Hoying may be promoted from the minors to give the Rangers an extra outfielder.
