THE NEWBERG REPORT — April 25, 2008

Matt
Patterson of the Daily Oklahoman
reports that Texas
has decided to recall catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, in light of the bruised throwing
hand that catcher Adam Melhuse sustained handling a pitch in the dirt in
yesterday afternoon’s game.  Nothing official
yet, though, and in fact Jon Daniels told T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com that the
club wouldn’t make a decision until evaluating Melhuse further today.  It could just be that the club is bringing Saltalamacchia
in from Oklahoma City
so that he’ll be in town and available just in case.

The
switch-hitting Saltalamacchia, in the first AAA assignment of his career, has
hit .291/.391/.491 for the RedHawks (.462/.500/.769 against lefthanders,
.238/.360/.405 against righties, .300/.417/.400 with runners in scoring
position).  He has caught 15 of the club’s
21 games, sporting a spotless fielding percentage and cutting down three of 11
would-be basestealers.
