NEWBERG REPORT PLUS — JUNE 9, 2007
It seems almost as foreign as it would be (will be?) to report that Mark Teixeira has been traded:
Iron man Mark Teixeira is headed to the disabled list, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, due to the strained left quad he sustained last night.
And this one was a bit startling as well:
Kam Loe is being optioned to Oklahoma.
So says the Star-Telegram, which suggests the assignment is to let Loe work in the AAA rotation to further develop his offspeed pitches.
To replace Teixeira and Loe on the roster, Brad Wilkerson will be activated and Travis Metcalf will be recalled.
