Regilio down, Astacio activated 

As expected, to make room for Pedro Astacio on the roster, the Rangers optioned Nick Regilio to AAA.

It will be interesting to see how yesterday's meltdown affects the organization's thoughts on him. As Sam Narron learned last season, you can go from the organizational favorite to waiver-wire fodder with one bad outing, given this management group.

Regilio really didn't pitch that well last year, either, in AAA or the minors, so I have been at a bit of a loss as to how he became such a hot prospect in the organization's mind. He throws hard, which, of course, is the number one priority in Arlington right now, but his control hasn't been good, and there's been no real indication that he's better than the numbers suggest.

I'd keep an eye on Regilio's first few outings in Oklahoma...
