SEATTLE -- Backup catcher Taylor Teagarden, who remains on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring, had his rehab assignment shift to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday night.

Teagarden had made six appearances in Florida between the Gulf Coast League and Florida State League.

Position players are allowed a maximum of a 20-day rehab assignment. And Teagarden's began July 12. So the team technically has through the end of the month before deciding how to proceed.

A team insider speculated that Anthony Recker, who has an option remaining, would probably remain the major league backup once Teagarden is activated. That would mean Teagarden would have to clear waivers and accept the assignment to be outrighted to Las Vegas.
