Rangers catcher Taylor Teagardenâ€™s fast start to 2007 hit a speedbump yesterday when he went on the disabled list with elbow soreness.
Teagarden, who was hitting .324/.511/.588 with a pair of home runs and nine RBIs in 34 at-bats at high Class A Bakersfield, has battled minor elbow pain throughout Aprilâ€”the same elbow the 23-year-old had Tommy John surgery on in November of 2005.
Teagarden was expected to be examined by team doctors in Texas today.
On another note, righthander Edinson Volquez seemed to take a step in the right direction during his last start for the Blaze. But frustration mounted when Volquez got into it with the home plate umpire in the fifth inning of Bakersfieldâ€™s 7-5 loss to Modesto and was subsequently ejected.
Volquez allowed three runs on just one hit, walked five and struck out four. Overall, the righthander is now 0-1, 8.05 with a 20-14 strikeout-walk ratio in 19 innings.
