Poveda put on 60-day DL
To make room on the 40-man roster for Smoak, the Texas Rangers recalled right-handed pitcher Omar Poveda and placed him on the 60-day disabled list.
Smoak, 23, will make his major league debut Friday against Detroit. He has spent the entire season with Triple-A Oklahoma City, batting .300 (15-50) with two home runs, six doubles, five RBIs and 10 runs scored in 15 games.
