Matt Harrison Sent to Dallas for MRI by Texas Rangers

After being scratched from throwing in live BP the other day for hinting of neck/back stiffness, Texas Rangers GM Jon Daniels has decided to send Matt Harrison to Dallas for a MRI.

Matt Harrison came into the Rangers Spring Training looking lighter and feeling well. During Anthony Andro’s Twitterview, Harrison answered my question about what he has been doing this offseason to keep his back and core strength which you can watch below.

If Harrison is not able to start the season in the rotation, that is going to be a huge hiccup for Ron Washington. The Texas Rangers logically only have two other candidates that could take the spot, Colby Lewis and Tommy Hanson, which have both looked good so far at camp.

Hopefully, JD is just being extra cautious with the players and Matt Harrison’s MRI will come back clean and will be allowed to resume baseball activities. Until then, fingers crossed that Matt Harrison is OK and that EVERY PLAYER STAYS HEALTHY!

    No Nick Tepesch?

      I am thinking he is already going to be in there.

      • Brandon Land

        Ah OK. Just curious. I think Tepesch has a chance to be improved over last season with some Major League experience under his belt.

        • lmhw24

          Agreed. He’s entering his age 25 season and didn’t look too bad in his 17 (I think it was 17) starts and w/Maddux coaching, he can improve greatly

    At least we are in week one of spring training and not week one of the season. I’m staying optimistic he’ll be fine.

      YES!
