Rangers get chance to play spoiler vs. A's

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Texas Rangers get to play the role of the spoiler but are not quite sure who they will be spoiling with when they open a three-game series Monday night against the Oakland Athletics.

The Rangers' pitching rotation got thrown for a bit of a loop during the weekend when veteran Bartolo Colon experienced back spasms and had to be scratched from his Sunday start.

The injury is not considered serious, and Rangers manager Jeff Banister indicated he would need to check in with Colon (7-10, 5.19 ERA) after the club's flight to Oakland on Sunday night to see if and when the right-hander might be available to pitch against one of his former teams.
