Plans for rehabbing Ranger pitchers
By Richard Durrett
Rain has altered the schedule for some of the Rangers pitchers going through rehab. Here is the plan as of now for those at Triple-A Round Rock:
* Tommy Hunter will spot start on Friday. He'll pitch three or four innings, but is still considered a reliever and will pitch out of the bullpen after that. When he returns to the majors, part of his role would likely be as a spot starter, so he'll get a feel for what that's like on Friday.
* Darren O’Day is scheduled to pitch on Saturday along with Scott Feldman.
* Eric Hurley is expected to pitch on Sunday.
