Taylor Teagarden to have TJ

Taylor Teagarden, who helped lead the University of Texas to the national championship before accepting a $700,000 signing bonus from the Rangers this summer, may not catch at all next year.

 

Teagarden, the Rangers' third-round pick in the June draft, underwent Tommy John ligament transplant surgery on his right (throwing) elbow last week, general manager Jon Daniels said Sunday.

 

Daniels said Teagarden should be able to hit early next season, and it is hoped he will catch before the end of the year. Daniels said Teagarden injured the elbow during the Arizona Instructional League but did not provide further details.

 

Teagarden hit .281 with seven homers and 16 RBIs in 31 games for rookie-level Spokane after signing, then went to the Arizona league, which ended in October.

 

A graduate of Carrollton Creekview, Teagarden, who turns 22 on Dec. 21, was considered a possible first-round pick going into the Longhorns' season. He slid to the third round partly because he was represented by Scott Boras.

 

The Rangers, seeking to add depth at catcher, agreed to pay the bonus. Along with Mike Nickeas, taken in the fifth round of the 2004 draft, and Gerald Laird, Teagarden gave the Rangers' organization a cache of young catchers. Teagarden, like Nickeas last year, was expected to go to major league spring training as a non-roster invitee. He will instead spend that time rehabilitating his elbow.

Believing in predetermined outcomes is stupid.

Says the guy who said Braylon Edwards wouldn't be good because he went to Michigan.
