Added pitcher JOHN WASDIN to the 40-man roster and recalled him from AAA Oklahoma. Sent pitcher RYAN SNARE to AAA Oklahoma. Transferred pitcher MICKEY CALLAWAY from the 15-day to the 60-day Disabled List.

Snare enjoyed five days of Major League service time, including trips to and from glorious LAX, without having to throw a pitch. With Kenny Rogers down with the flu, Texas swallowed hard and added John Wasdin to the roster. Wasdin veritably defines the "4A" player, consistently excelling in the minors and never pitching well enough to hang on in the Majors. Callaway probably needs surgery, but even if he doesn't, forcing him off the squad until late July won't hurt anything. Three-fifths of the original starting rotation is on the DL; from his furnished apartment in Omaha, Glendon Rusch ponders what might have been.
