Rangers rotation loses two

HOUSTON — The Rangers put LHPs Matt Harrison and Martin Perez on the disabled list Wednesday and could be without both starters for an extended period.

GM Jon Daniels said Harrison was diagnosed with significant nerve irritation in his vertebrae. He will have an injection Friday in an attempt to alleviate the symptoms before considering other options, including surgery.

Harrison, who made two starts last season before two operations on a herniated disc in his lower back, came out in the second inning Tuesday night at Houston. Daniels said the pitcher had a tingling sensation down his left leg, similar to what he experienced before having surgery last year.

Perez has a partial tear of his ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. His options are an injection and rehab that could keep him out three months, or season-ending Tommy John surgery.

BRAVES BALLPARK: The Braves released renderings of their new $672 million Cobb County stadium, which is scheduled to replace 17-year-old Turner Field in 2017 and will cost taxpayers $368 million. Images show a stadium with three main decks, including a split upper deck, and a sun canopy that's about three times the size of the one at Turner Field. The park will be surrounded by shops, restaurants and entertainment venues, as well as a boutique hotel, office space and about 500 residences.

ANGELS: Former Rays RHP Dane De La Rosa, who has been rehabbing from shoulder irritation, was shut down after four Triple-A outings and returned to California to be reevaluated.

BREWERS: CF Carlos Gomez dropped his appeal of a three-game suspension he received for his part in fight with the Pirates during a game on Easter Sunday.

CARDINALS: LHP Jaime Garcia, out all season with shoulder inflammation, is scheduled to start Saturday against the Braves. … 2B Kolten Wong, the opening day starter who was demoted to Triple-A Memphis April 27, was recalled from Memphis after batting .344 in 15 games there. INF Greg Garcia was optioned to Memphis.

METS: RHP Dillon Gee went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained lat muscle.

WHITE SOX: Former Rays INF Jeff Keppinger was designated for assignment.
