NOTES: The decimation of our roster continues. Another pitcher goes down, and with what I was reading about him, it sounds like it COULD be that injury that requires Tommy John surgery, in which case Figueroa is done for QUITE a long time. I read somewhere that we had no other position players on the 40 man roster that could be brought up, so they traded for Dan Robertson of the Padres. I know nothing about him, except he is going to be making his major league debut whenever he plays. Exciting for that kid, that’s for sure!
Hope for the best for Figueroa. John Blake of the Rangers tweeted this out today, and it seems telling of our current situation:
