The Rangers placed Matt Harrison on the disabled list last week with back trouble. That back trouble is worse than first feared:

There’s no official timetable yet, but Andro tweets that Harrison likely won’t be back until after the All-Star break.
Harrison had started 30-plus games in each of the past two years. And he just signed a five-year, $55 million extension in January. Tough break.
