Severe migraines may have been responsible for perplexing moment in the eighth inning of Monday's game.

Perhaps the most interesting moment in Monday's game between the Texas Rangers and San Diego came in the broadcast booth. In the eighth inning, Ranger announcer Dave Barnett uttered some nonsensical phrases that left the booth silent for a few moments.

You can see a video clip of this here.

On Tuesday, it was discovered that Barnett may have been suffering from severe migraines and will take a few days off the air.

In a statement Tuesday, the Rangers said Barnett would be evaluated over the "next few days" and miss the rest of the San Diego series. The team says Barnett believes he's had a recurrence of migraine headaches.

Radio announcer Steve Barby will fill in while Barnett is away from the team. No timetable has been outlined as to when Barnett will return to the booth for Texas.
