ARLINGTON -- Yorvit Torrealba was held out of Monday's game against the Astros after leaving Sunday's game in the fifth inning due to dehydration. Torrealba was not supposed to start Sunday after catching 19 innings over the previous two days in Atlanta, but when Taylor Teagarden was unavailable to start the game, Torrealba was pressed into duty. "He got dehydrated," Rangers manager Ron Washington said Monday. "The thing is, I really didn't want to play him yesterday. Teagarden wasn't ready to go, but then he had to go."
Torrealba said that he is, in fact, healthy. "I feel great; I feel a lot better, obviously," Torrealba said. "Yesterday, it was kind of hot there, so I was just dehydrated." Torrealba said he felt odd as early as the second inning, but still managed to go 2-for-2 in his two plate appearances. Alexi Ogando also received an IV treatment while pitching Sunday afternoon in Atlanta, but Washington said he is healthy. "They're all good, but I'm not going to play Torrealba today," Washington said. "I'm going to give Torrie a day, might give him two." Teagarden batted eighth for the Rangers in Monday's game against the Astros.
