NEWBERG REPORT PLUS — AUGUST 29, 2007
According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, the Rangers have placed third baseman Travis Metcalf on the disabled list due to the strained hamstring he suffered in last night’s game. Jerry Hairston Jr. has been activated.
Sullivan also confirms the worst-kept secret in Rangerland, that Edinson Volquez will start Saturday’s game. Volquez is reportedly in town, though he won’t be activated until Saturday, when rosters can expand.
