Busy Friday afternoon, Rangers news-wise...
Per the DMN blog, Hank Blalock has had surgery on his wrist, and will be out a minimum of 4 weeks.
Supposedly, when Franklyn German was DFA'd to make room for Kam Loe, the Rangers would have dropped Chris Shelton instead (because Blalock was expected to be activated in a couple of days), had it not been for the fact that Frank Catalanotto's back was bothering him. Think they dodged a bullet there?
This also means that Blalock could end up getting moved to the 60 day d.l. to make room for Nelson Cruz, should the Rangers opt to send Brandon Boggs back down and take one last look at Cruz.
