Treanor suffers sprained right knee

ARLINGTON -- Rangers catcher Matt Treanor left Friday's game after suffering a sprained right knee in the seventh inning of the club's 1-0 win over the Angels.

Treanor was trying to beat out a soft ground ball to second before tripping over the foot of Angels first baseman Kevin Frandsen.

"I think I was sniffing a hit. I got to the base and I guess I hit his foot, I wasn't sure," Treanor said. "I tried to catch myself and felt something weird in there."

He immediately fell to the ground, where the Rangers' medical staff attended to him. He walked off under his own power but was replaced in the game by primary catcher Bengie Molina.

"I wanted to get up right away and they wanted me to stay down," Treanor said. "You don't want to get up and do something stupid."

He'll have an MRI on Saturday and be evaluated further at that time.

"I think after tomorrow, we'll have a better idea of where I'm at and I'll have a better idea of what my limitations will be," Treanor said.
