Share This Story
Benoit is 3-5 with a 6.22 earned run average in 23 games -- 13 starts -- for Texas this season. For his career, he is 15-15 with a 5.76 ERA. The 26-year-old Benoit joins a growing list of Texas starters on the DL as Colby Lewis, Chan Ho Park, Juan Dominguez, Ricardo Rodriguez and R.A. Dickey are all sidelined with various injuries. To fill Benoit's roster spot, the Rangers recalled pitcher Chris Young from Triple-A Oklahoma. Young, a former basketball player at Princeton, made his major league debut Tuesday night against Minnesota and was charged with three runs and four hits over 5 2/3 innings. Texas eventually won the game 5-4.
