Transaction

Placed pitcher RICARDO RODRIGUEZ on the 15-day Disabled List. Recalled pitcher ROSMAN GARCIA from AAA. Activated outfielder BRIAN JORDAN and catcher GERALD LAIRD from the Disabled List. Designated outfielder CHAD ALLEN and catcher DANNY ARDOIN for assignment.

A very tough loss for the Rangers. Rodriguez had pitched fabulously and seemed primed to give the Rangers a legitimate third starter, but Rob Quinlan's liner to Rodriguez's elbow dashes that hope. Rodriguez won't pitch again in 2004, leaving Rogers, Drese, and three gaping holes to carry on. Jordan hopes to improve on his .103 average. Whether he does or not, he'll probably play more than Kevin Mench.
