(TSX / STATS) -- The Texas Rangers will give their fans a look at the biggest piece acquired in the Yu Darvish trade with the promotion of outfielder Willie Calhoun.

The Rangers purchased Calhoun's contract from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday and activated 3B Adrian Beltre from the 10-day disabled list. To make room for Calhoun on the 40-man roster, the club also released right-hander Tyson Ross.

Calhoun, 22, is starting on Tuesday when the Rangers host the Seattle Mariners. Calhoun hit .300 and posted a .927 OPS with 31 home runs and 93 RBIs at Triple-A this season while playing for Oklahoma City (Dodgers) and Round Rock. He was part of the trade that sent Darvish to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Beltre was placed on the DL with a hamstring strain on Sep. 3, retroactive to Sep. 1, and is not expected to play much over the remainder of the season. He is hitting .315 with 16 homers in 80 games and reached 3,000 career hits earlier in the season.

Ross struggled in 12 games -- 10 starts -- with Texas, going 3-3 with a 7.71 ERA.
