Taylor Teagarden heading to the AFL

New, comments

Richard Durrett writes that Taylor Teagarden is being sent by the Rangers to join the team's AFL contingent at Surprise.

I'd guess he'll be replacing catcher Doug Hogan, who the Rangers had included as part of their initial group. 

But it leads one to wonder...is this just a concern that Teagarden didn't get enough at bats during the regular season while backing up Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and wanting to get him more time against live pitching in a game situation?  Or could the Rangers be talking to a team that has an interest in Teagarden, and that wants to have a chance to scout him more this fall?
