Bukvich to have T-J surgery...

Well, it is an epidemic, it appears...

Like Frankie Francisco and Carlos Almanzar, Ryan Bukvich is out for the year with Tommy John surgery...

Bukvich was unlikely to have any impact on the bullpen the rest of the season, so this shouldn't have a big impact on the team.

But, like Almanzar and Francisco, he's done until sometime in 2006, and is a candidate for the 60 day d.l. If all three are put on there, it leaves 4 open slots on the 40 man roster, which could allow the Rangers to try to put in a waiver claim later this summer should another team try to drop a player from their 40 man roster...
