Placed pitcher R.A. DICKEY on the 15-day Disabled List. Recalled pitcher RICARDO RODRIGUEZ from AAA Oklahoma. Transferred reliever JAY POWELL from the 15-day to the 60-day Disabled List.

Dickey has only a minor pull in a back muscle, but the Rangers are being careful. Well, to be more accurate, the Rangers probably would have allowed Dickey to pitch through his soreness had he not been so ineffecftive lately. Dickey gets a few days to regroup, while Rodriguez joins the 25-man roster for the first time since last summer. Rodriguez will pitch middle relief for the moment; even modest results should have him replacing Bierbrodt, Benoit or Wasdin within two weeks. Powell is done for the season.
