Harden to start on Saturday…Feldman to the bullpen
The official word out of the Rangers clubhouse is that Rich Harden will return to the rotation and start on Saturday night against the Angels. Manager Ron Washington announced the move on Friday.
Scott Feldman will be in the bullpen.
“Feldman has the experience in the bullpen,” Washington said. “Harden is ready to go. We had to make a decision. Both of them need to be on the club. Harden will start. Feldman will help us out of the bullpen.”
Also on Friday…
Mitch Moreland is at first base. Jorge Cantu is here but not in the lineup. Cantu will start on Saturday against Danny Haren. Washington said Moreland will start mainly against right-handers and Cantu will start mainly against left-handers. But he will use Cantu against right-handers.
Joaquin Arias is starting at second base as the Rangers have yet to announce the Guzman trade.
Bengie Molina is at catcher. David Murphy is starting ahead of Julio Borbon.
Taylor Teagarden will start on Sunday with Cliff Lee behind the plate.
