Dickey and Almanzar update 

The initial word on R.A. Dickey is that he has a "lat strain," and will have an MRI tomorrow.

My guess is that he goes on the d.l., with Nick Regilio taking his place tomorrow.

Additionally, Victor Rojas says that Almanzar pitched at the Rangers' Dominican academy, will be returning to the team on Thursday, and will be immediately activated.

At that point, the Rangers could either send Chris Young down to make room for Almanzar, with Ricardo Rodriguez being called up, as discussed below, on Sunday to take Young's spot in the rotation, or Bukvich or Regilio could be sent down.

I'd love to see Ric Rod in the rotation. Its too bad Young's gotten off to a bad start. Hopefully the bullpen will reshape to last year when frankie and almanzar come back, hopefully...
Are you sure Regilio can come back this soon after being sent down for Astacio?

I don't think he is eligible yet.
Regilio can be brought back up, if he's replacing someone who is going on the d.l.

The rule is you have to spend at least 10 days in the minors, once you've been optioned, unless you are replacing someone who goes on the d.l., in which case you can return immediately.

Interestingly, if you are outrighted, rather than optioned, the ten day waiting period doesn't apply.
