Texas placed catcher GERALD LAIRD on the minor-league Disabled List.

Laird had to leave the previous game in the first inning. I don't know why.

Texas also released pitcher Ryan Snare, part of the swag for Ugueth Urbina in 2003. The 26-year-old pitched well for AAA Oklahoma the rest of the season but has gotten progressively worse results. Snare had a 6.38 ERA and allowed 108 baserunners in 60 innings this season. He was a second-round pick, 63rd overall, in the 2000 draft.
