Guess what?! Kris Benson is on the disabled list again. It's like a second home to this guy.
The Texas Rangers righty landed on the 15-day DL with tendinitis in his right elbow, retroactive to April 16th. Benson, who is 1-1 with a 9.00 ERA in two starts this season, had been away from baseball since 2006. He skipped the 2007 season after shoulder surgery and pitched in the Philadelphia Phillies' minor league system in 2008 before the Phils released him in August. He then signed a minor league contract with Texas last winter and miraculously made their opening roster.
Right-handed pitcher Scott Feldman, who is 0-0 with a 12.60 ERA in two relief appearances this season, will start in Benson’s place this Saturday.
So Long For Now, Anna
