Curtis Terry is making his MLB debut as I write this. It is a well-deserved promotion for Terry who has been lighting up opposing pitchers in Triple-A Round Rock.
The promotion of Curtis Terry, 24, makes perfect sense for right now for the Rangers. He was going to have to be protected this winter by being added to the 40-man roster and the team has been struggling, losing 9 games in a row.
Through 65 games with Triple-A Round Rock he has slashed a line of .294/.375/.583/.958 with 17 home runs and 53 RBI. He’s primarily been used as the DH and 1st baseman and will likely serve as the designated-hitter for the Rangers. One of the big moments of the season was when Curtis Terry hit for the cycle, showing that he doesn’t just hit home runs.
To make room for Terry on the roster, catcher John Hicks was designated for assignment, leaving the Rangers Major-League roster at 40.
