Texas Puts RHP O’Day On 60-Day DL With Hip Injury
ARLINGTON (AP) The Texas Rangers put relief pitcher Darren O’Day on the 60-day disabled list Wednesday with a partially torn labrum in his left hip that will require surgery.
O’Day pitched a scoreless ninth in Tuesday night’s 10-3 loss to Toronto, but the decision was made after the game to shut down O’Day, one of the primary setup relievers in the Rangers’ run to the AL championship last season.
“It’s something that’s been there for years, but he’s been pitching with it,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “It got to the point where it was bothering him and we’ve got to do something about it.”
