Saltalamacchia up

The Rangers have recalled catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia from
releasing catcher Adam Melhuse (who, it turns out, broke his hand yesterday,
according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram). 
The club has also activated LHP Eddie Guardado from the 15-day disabled
list and placed RHP Luis Mendoza on the 15-day DL, retroactive to April 24,
with right shoulder inflammation. 

The release of Melhuse reduces the roster to 39 players, potentially
clearing the way for a non-roster pitcher (Sidney Ponson?  Doug Mathis?) to join the rotation in the next
few days. 

Richard Durrett of the Dallas Morning News also reports
that RHP Brandon McCarthy has had a setback of some sort, pushing his potential
return to some time in the second half.
