Mike Napoli to the disabled list, Taylor Teagarden being recalled

Per Jeff Wilson, Texas Rangers catcher Mike Napoli is being placed on the disabled list with a strained oblique, and Taylor Teagardn is being recalled.

I thought that there might be a move coming today, with Dave Bush logging a bunch of innings yesterday before leaving with a bruised hamstring.  I figured that Texas might put him on the d.l. and bring up a new long reliever, so that there was an arm available in the pen this afternoon, should Matt Harrison struggle.

Napoli, though?  I didn't see that coming.

This is a blow to the Rangers...Napoli has been one of the team's more potent bats this year, and along with splitting time behind the plate with Yorvit Torrealba, he has gotten time at first base and DH.  

No news just yet as to how long Napoli will be on the shelf.  I will update this post going forward as we get more info.
