Matt Harrison scratched, Dave Bush to start

Per the S-T, Texas Ranger starting pitcher Matt Harrison has been scratched from his scheduled start in Cleveland tomorrow due to blister problems.  

Long reliever Dave Bush will make the start instead, and you have to wonder if the Rangers won't consider sending down Craig Gentry tomorrow to make room for someone like Ryan Tucker or Pedro Strop, so that there's another fresh arm in the bullpen.

Of course, the bullpen is pretty well-rested after today's game, and newly-recalled lefty Michael Kirkman can give the Rangers multiple innings, so a move tomorrow probably won't be necessary, although if Bush can't go deep into the game or Texas has to go through a lot of relievers, we could conceivably see a move on Friday.
