Rheinekcer Up, Shouse DL'ed.

Texas placed reliever BRIAN SHOUSE on the 15-day Disabled List and recalled pitcher JOHN RHEINECKER from AAA Oklahoma.

Texas wins the battle with Oakland over which traded pitcher would join the active roster first. Rheinecker has a bizarre line in AAA so far: ten Ks and only one walk in 15+ innings, but also 26 hits allowed and a 5.87 ERA. The hits aren’t necessarily just a function of luck. In 541 AA-AAA innings, Rheinecker’s opponents have batted a robust .325 on balls in play. He’ll start Saturday night against a salty Tampa Bay offense.

Shouse has a strained right calf and an opposing batters’ line of .316/.350/.632.
