On Mendoza and Gabbard

The Rangers website has an item up on Luis Mendoza and Kason Gabbard.  Gabbard is getting called up on Saturday to take over for Doug Mathis in the rotation.  Mathis is supposedly heading back to the bullpen, but they are going to have to send someone down to make room for Gabbard, and unless they option Josh Rupe, Mathis would seem to be the most likely candidate.

There's also some discussion of Mendoza's return from his shoulder problem, with a lack of strength after his injury apparently being blamed for his first two awful appearances.  Oklahoma manager Bobby Jones has praise for how Mendoza has pitched his last couple of times out, and it sounds like Mendoza could be on track to get back to Texas before too terribly long.
