Placed 1B MARK TEIXEIRA on the 15-day Disabled List effective April 13th. Recalled 1B ADRIAN GONZALEZ from AAA Oklahoma.

Teixeira goes down with the dreaded oblique pull. Having a pulled side muscle is a real problem for those who violently swing a bat, and the same injury felled Kevin Mench for nearly a month. For a team that used to be drowning in 1B/DH types, the replacement bin is remarkably bare now. Texas doesn't want to risk injury to Brad Fullmer, so perpetually sore Herbert Perry will start there with Adrian Gonzalez as a caddy. Gonzalez still hold the moniker of "prized prospect" but has yet to produce above AA. He'll return to the minors as soon as Teixeira returns.
