Taylor Teagarden To Replace Injured Matt Treanor

Per Jeff Wilson.

A baseball source just said that Taylor Teagarden will join the Rangers before tonight’s game. He has been playing at Double A Frisco, and they are in town. The Rangers are hopeful that it’s a short-term move and that Matt Treanor can be ready in a few days, so they went with the catcher who would best control the running game. Right now, that’s Teagarden.

Oh boy.

Teagarden, despite finishing 4th in All-Star voting, had just one hit (a single) and four walks in 33 plate appearances at the MLB level this season. He currently has a .337 wOBA at AA.

And I don’t think the club’s lack of confidence in Max Ramirez behind the plate has ever been more clear.
