The Rangers promoted Gentry to the majors on September 1, 2009, but did not see significant playing time. He began the 2010 season with the AAA Oklahoma City RedHawks, but was called up to the majors on April 27 due to Nelson Cruz being placed on the 15-day disabled list. On May 15, he was optioned to Oklahoma.
In 2011, he batted .271 in 133 at-bats, with 18 steals in 18 attempts.
