Rangers want Martin Perez in starter's role
|Ron Washington joins Fitzsimmons & Durrett live from Milwaukee for his weekly visit and discusses Nick Tepesch, the Rangers' rotation, interleague play and more. |
“We’ll get at least one more start on rehab and then we’ll make a call from there. At that point our choice will be to leave him on rehab, recall him to the big leagues if we have a need and he’s pitching well enough for that, or option him to the minor leagues.”
Daniels said that while the Rangers haven’t ruled anything out, he’d lean toward keeping Perez as a starter since the Rangers already have three lefties in the bullpen and that at this point in the season, he prefers to have starting pitching depth.
