Hunter to start Friday

The Rangers will start Tommy Hunter on Friday instead of Brandon McCarthy. Both he and Neftali Feliz will pitch three innings. Omar Poveda will start the B game and also pitch three innings.


As painful is this is, we need to accept the fact that McCarthy is damaged goods. I’ll be shocked if he makes 10 starts this year. Give the opportunity to someone who really wants to pitch.

If he misses his next scheduled start I’ll be as close to done with him as I can be someone his age, but the fact is he’s still going to throw off a mound on Friday so it looks more precuationary than serious and frankly I’d rather err on the side of caution in the spring.

Start his season on the DL then thru OKC and bring him back for ‘pen duty. He’s done as a starter.
