Ramirez called up… Teagarden sent down. Saltalamacchia optioned
The Rangers made the following moves with their catchers…
* Max Ramirez was called up from Triple A Oklahoma City.
* Taylor Teagarden has been optioned to Oklahoma City.
* Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been taken off medical rehab assignment and optioned to Oklahoma City.
* Matt Treanor will be the No. 1 catcher and Ramirez will be his backup.
Ramirez was hitting .289 (13-45) at Oklahoma City with no home runs, three doubles and four RBI in 13 games.
Saltalamacchia will be the No. 1 catcher at Oklahoma City. The Rangers want both him and Teagarden to go play.
Saltalamacchia has to be at Oklahoma City for 10 days. The Rangers want him concentrating on playing and not worrying about when he’ll be recalled to the big leagues.
