ARLINGTON — Rookie outfielder Wyatt Langford will spend the next 10 to 14 days at the Rangers’ complex in Arizona to complete his rehab from a strained right hamstring.

Langford was packing his bags Wednesday night after the Rangers’ 4-0 victory over the Guardians. He has been doing more baseball activities this week, including hitting and running up to 90 percent effort.

He said he should start to run bases next week at the Surprise Recreation Campus and ease into Arizona Complex League games at designated hitter before playing the outfield. Those games in the ACL might serve as his rehab assignment.

“I don’t think it should be too long,” Langford said.

The Rangers are off Thursday before playing a three-game weekend series against the Angels. After an off day Monday, they head on the road to Philadelphia and Minnesota.

Langford might be ready May 28-29 for a pair of home games in a World Series rematch against the Diamondbacks.

The preseason Rookie of the Year favorite was injured May 4 at Kansas City after feeling his hamstring grab while heading  out of the batter’s box on an infield tapper. The Rangers didn’t place him on the injured list until May 6.
