Good news: Keone Kela, the Texas Rangers' flamethrowing righty reliever who has been on the shelf for the past couple of months after elbow surgery, has been activated from the disabled list. Yay!
Bad news: Jake Diekman, Texas Rangers setup man and the only effective lefty in the pen right now, has been placed on the disabled list with a "lacerated left index finger." Boo!
In any case, Diekman is eligible to return on July 21, and it sounds like he is expected to be back around then, and there's worse things than missing a week of time, I guess.
To make room for Kela on the 40 man roster -- since he had previously been on the 60 day d.l. -- Derek Holland has been transferred to the 60 day d.l.
