 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -Rangers infielder Hank Blalock, who has been taking medication for carpal tunnel syndrome in his right wrist, will return to Texas for an examination Tuesday.
He will miss the three-game series against the Rays, and won't resume swinging a bat for at least a couple days.
Blalock may go out on a minor league rehab assignment before being activated from the disabled list.
``I haven't had a chance to discuss that with Hank,'' Rangers manager Ron Washington said Monday. ``Right now, the only thing we're concerned about is when he can play.''
Blalock originally went on the 15-day DL with a left hamstring injury on April 29, retroactive to April 26. He experienced soreness in the wrist last week.
