ST. PETERSBURG, FL (AP) – The Texas Rangers have decided to give 15-game winner Matt Harrison a couple extra days of rest.

Manager Ron Washington said before Friday night’s game against Tampa Bay that Harrison (15-9) will have his scheduled start Sunday pushed back until Tuesday.

Washington noted that giving Harrison a break last season helped him.

Roy Oswalt will start in place of Harrison.
