Wilk to the d.l., Mahar up

New, comments

Jamey Newberg reports that Brad Wilkerson is heading for the disabled list, and Kevin Mahar has been called up to take his spot.

Mahar has to be added to the 40 man roster, so John Rheinecker is heading for the 60 day d.l.

Mahar getting called up instead of Marlon Byrd is a surprise, but it does give the Rangers something they haven't had in a while...a really good defensive centerfielder (and no, GMJ wasn't a really good defensive centerfielder)...

I know zywica has watched him some, so he might have some thoughts he can share on what Mahar brings to the table...
