This tweet from Anthony Andro sums it up pretty good.
This has to rank right up there as one of darkest days in Rangers history.— Anthony Andro (@aandro) May 14, 2014
On to the transactions:
- P Nick Tepesch recalled from AAA
- P Scott Baker purchased from AAA
- P Martin Perez placed on 15 day DL
- P Justin Germano designated for assignment [ Link ]
- P Matt Harrison placed on 15 day DL
- P Miles Mikolas recalled from AAA [ Link ]
NOTES: The worst part of this transaction sheet is that the biggest news of the day: Matt Harrison. Harrison will need spinal fusion surgery, and from the way they’re talking, it could be a career ending procedure. Additionally, Martin Perez will likely need Tommy John surgery, so he’s over for 2014, and realistically for most of 2015, as well. That’s a damn shame. Liked both these guys a lot, and was really hoping they’d pull through and help the team. Pretty bad day for the Rangers, that’s for sure. :(
Hopefully Nick Tepesch can show some of that form he had last year, as we need the help. There’s no doubt about that. Sad part is that we’re likely to see Joe Saunders again. Ick.
