Rangers right-hander Rich Harden failed to make it out of the third inning in his last start, August 7 against the A’s, and he had a scheduled outing pushed back this week for undisclosed reasons. No we know why.
Harden was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with right shoulder tendinitis, according to Anthony Andro of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The move was made retroactive to August 8.
Harden, 28, is one of the nastiest pitchers in baseball when healthy and completely focused, but he’s struggled to the tune of a 5.45 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 15 starts this season. The Rangers have major playoff aspirations and can ill afford to lose momentum at this point. Harden will try to right the ship down on the farm.
Outfielder Brandon Boggs has been recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.
