Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the diagnosis “wasn’t as severe as initially feared,” so they’ll hold off on placing him on the disabled list for now. Things could change if he doesn’t make progress in a few days.
This decision has ramifications for the roster, as the Rangers will push back Colby Lewis‘ season debut in order to keep as many bench players and relievers as possible. Lewis was originally expected to come up from the minors to start Saturday against the Astros, but he’ll now likely get the call on Monday or Tuesday against the Mariners.
