Torres to replace Matthews

Both the DMN and the S-T are saying that Andres Torres will replace Gary Matthews, Jr., who will be heading to the d.l. with a hamstring pull.

I hadn't considered Torres a likely replacement, since he's been hurt, but apparently Torres was ready to be activated today anyway.

This means that the Rangers bench will consist of Andres Torres, Chad Allen, Mark DeRosa, and Sandy Alomar, Jr. This has to be one of the worst benches in baseball...something that is a bit of a problem when you have two regulars who only play against righthanders, and your starting rightfielder and catcher can't hit.
