by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"We've got (Matt) Harrison in the rotation, we need to get him back on a regular routine. We want to get Martin Perez on a regular routine. Unplugging Wandy out of the rotation and using him in the bullpen, we felt he was the best guy to go. We can replug him into the rotation."

Report: Rangers seeking to unload SP Wandy Rodriguez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

This is the first time he’s thrown a shoe really. Tough one. We’ll move on from it, play tomorrow, and I’m sure Wandy, he’ll erase this one from his memory bank. If I know him well, he’ll figure out what went wrong and move on.”
