The Rangers have placed lefty starting pitcher Kason Gabbard on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation. Gabbard has started 12 games this season for the Rangers and he is 2-3 with a 4.82 ERA and a 1.84 WHIP. Gabbard’s main issue has been throwing strikes this season as he has walked 39 batters in only 56 innings. Gabbard will likely be replaced by Luis Mendoza in the starting rotation. The Rangers have recalled 24-year old righty reliever Warner Madrigal up from the minors to replace Gabbard on the pitching staff. He has pitched in 31 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA ball this season and he is 1-0 with 14 saves, a 3.00 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. He has good stuff as evidenced by his 43 whiffs in only 36 innings this season.
