Saltalamacchia passes number of tests

ARLINGTON -- Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia passed a number of tests on his upper back and left shoulder on Friday.

Saltalamacchia, who was placed on the disabled list Thursday, had an X-ray, MRI and nerve test done and the results all came back normal. Dr. Drew Dossett gave Saltalamacchia an anti-inflammatory injection that will likely take a couple of days to take effect.

Saltalamacchia injured himself during Monday's game with the Blue Jays.
