Richardson coming up for Saltalamacchia
The Rangers are promoting catcher Kevin Richardson from Triple A Oklahoma City. He will replace Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who is going on the disabled list with a sore right arm.
Richardson is hitting .223 with 12 home runs and 34 RBI in 66 games and 229 at-bats. Richardson, 28, was a non-drafted free agent signed in 2002 out of Gonzaga.
The Rangers are actively looking for catching help on the trade market.
