Harrison scratched from Sunday start

Matt Harrison was scratched from his start Sunday against the Padres due to inflammation around his left biceps. He underwent an MRI Friday, which showed no structural damage.

Taking Sunday’s start is Tommy Hunter, who allowed three earned runs in 5 1/3 innings on May 29 in an emergency start. He was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City when Harrison went on the disabled list with a sore left shoulder.

Harrison is expected to see a neurologist on Monday to rule out trouble with nerves. He is 4-5 with a 6.11 ERA in 11 starts for the Rangers this season.

Hunter has a 3-2 record with a 3.83 ERA for Triple-A Oklahoma City this season.


He really should see a Physical Therapist, they are movement specialists after all. Sound very possible that he has some nerve entrapment and some simple neural gliding techniques could have him back in action very soon.

I suspect a Board Certified Neurologist will diagnosis his case properly.
