Rich Harden may rejoin Rangers' rotation after striking out 10 in rehab start

Jul 27, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

Rich Harden’s minor-league rehab assignment was extended after he struggled in his first few outings, but the oft-injured right-hander racked up 10 strikeouts in six shutout innings at Triple-A last night.
Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News speculates that the performance may be enough to get Harden off the disabled list and back in the Rangers’ rotation as soon as this weekend.
Harden hasn’t pitched since June 11 because of a strained left gluteal muscle and struggled mightily while posting a 5.68 ERA and 59/43 K/BB ratio in 65 innings before the injury.

    What say we stick him in the pen for a few go-rounds before we entrust an actual START to him. Going back to last year, we haven’t seen anything really good out of him at all, certainly not since he got here and put on a Rangers jersey. I think he really needs to prove himself all over again, especially since the Rangers are doing what they’re doing. As far as stiking out 10 in AAA, I’m not sure my KID couldn’t do that, if all the planets were lined up properly…
