 SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -Texas Rangers right-hander Sidney Ponson left his start against the Los Angeles Angels in the top of the fourth inning Friday night after apparently injuring his right ankle.
Ponson stretched awkwardly Friday as he tried to beat Angels third baseman Chone Figgins to first base. The 31-year-old right-hander hopped twice before sitting just outside the first-base coaches' box. He eventually limped to the Texas clubhouse.
Ponson is 1-0 with an 8.31 ERA in his first two appearances. He allowed three hits over three-plus shutout innings against the Angels.
Ponson signed a minor-league contract on March 9 after Brandon McCarthy was sidelined with severe inflammation in his right elbow.
