ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -Texas Rangers starter Kameron Loe will not pitch the rest of the season because of a sore right elbow.
The right-handed Loe (6-11) is second on the team with 136 innings and 23 starts.
``It's disappointing,'' Loe said. ``I would like to have gotten a couple of more starts. But there's no reason to risk it.''
Loe last pitched Sept. 3 against the Kansas City Royals. That start lasted just three innings because of the injury.
Loe threw a bullpen session Wednesday, but his elbow was still bothering him and the Rangers elected to shut him down for the year.
``He was still experiencing discomfort,'' Texas manager Ron Washington said. ``There wasn't much more you can do.''
The Rangers used Loe out of the bullpen to open the season before he made his first start on April 21.
Loe was 1-6 in early June when he was briefly sent down to the minors. He won his first four starts after returning from Triple-A Oklahoma.
