Monday afternoon….Beltre, Saunders, Soria
Monday afternoon in Arlington
Third baseman Adrian Beltre said it was “probably smart” to go on the disabled list but added he disagreed with the decision.
Joe Saunders, on the disabled list with a bruised left foot, is supposed to throw a bullpen today. The next step would be some fielding drills.
Manager Ron Washington said if the Rangers havea lead on Monday night then Joakim Soria would be the closer. Alexi Ogando got a save on Sunday because Soria had pitched the two previous games. Washington said Ogando will still get chances to close but Soria is still the closer.
