Alex Rios (ankle) is expected to return to the lineup on Wednesday.

Rios tested out his sore right ankle prior to Tuesday's game and said he's fine, but Rangers manager Ron Washington elected to hold the outfielder out for a third straight game. "It felt good," Rios said. "I know Wash wanted to give me an extra day, but I'm ready. I expect to be as good as ever."

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Royals are considering a trade for outfielder Alex Rios.

Kansas City's offense ranks second-to-last in the major leagues in OPS and Rios could provide a boost. The 33-year-old outfielder is hitting .302/.330/.435 with four home runs and 16 stolen bases in 96 games this season for the Rangers, who are paying him $12.5 million in 2014 and hold a $13.5 million club option on him for 2015.

Rangers manager Ron Washington indicated Sunday that Alex Rios (ankle) will likely sit out until at least Tuesday.

Rios is sitting Sunday after exiting Saturday's contest with a sore right ankle, and he's not expected to play Monday, either. "I don't think tomorrow, but Tuesday could be an option," Washington said of Rios. "The ankle is a lot better, a lot better. We'll use today to get some more swelling out of it and tomorrow for treatment and hope he's ready to go on Tuesday." Daniel Robertson is in right field Sunday in Rios' place.

Alex Rios was removed from Saturday's game against the Blue Jays in the first inning after twisting his ankle on a foul ball.

He was replaced in the lineup by Daniel Robertson. It doesn't sound like the type of injury that will warrant a trip to the disabled list, so Rios should be considered day-to-day.

Alex Rios went 2-for-3 with a run scored and three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Angels.

Rios delivered an RBI sacrifice fly in the first and a two-run double in the third inning, giving him 42 RBI on the year. The outfielder has been one of the lone bright spots in what's been a forgettable year for the Rangers. Rios is hitting .305/.333/.440 with 16 steals and 41 runs scored heading into the All-Star break.

Alex Rios finished 2-for-5 with two runs scored in a 14-8 win against the A's on Monday.

Rios came into the game slashing .417/.455/.767 with two homers and 16 RBI against southpaws, so Oakland starter Drew Pomeranz, who served up singles in Rios' first two at-bats, really didn't have a chance. The 6-foot-5 outfielder has produced a mediocre .708 OPS against same-sided hurlers, but he's one of fantasy's best matchup plays when the Rangers are matched up against a lefty.

Rios' triple was his seventh of the year, and he leads the league with a .332 batting average. Rios was caught stealing for the eighth time in 20 attempts, arguably the sole downside to what's been a terrific season thus far for the 33-year-old.
