Teagarden replaces Treanor
The Rangers are calling up catcher Taylor Teagarden from Triple A Oklahoma City and placing Matt Treanor on the disabled list. Treanor sprained his knee in Friday’s game against the Angels. Teagarden is hitting .242 with three home runs and 32 RBI in 190 at-bats at Double A Frisco.
The Rangers had multiple options, including Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Max Ramirez. But they are going with Teagarden because of his defensive skills and ability to control the running game.
