A pair of starting pitchers found their way onto the disabled list this afternoon:

According to Jeff Wilson of the Dallas Morning News, the Texas Rangers have placed Rich Harden on the DL due to “a strained left gluteus muscle.”

There is currently no word as to who will replace him in the rotation as Alexi Ogando has been recalled to fill his spot on the roster.

Ogando has been impressive, posting a 2.05 ERA with 42 Ks over 30.2 innings between Double and Triple-A. Still, with the back end of their bullpen in place, he’ll likely hold little value in most fantasy formats.

As for Harden, he’s been struggling all year with a 5.68 ERA and 1.68 WHIP.  Just last night he allowed a home run to the Brewers.

He has also had control issues, walking 43 over 65.0 innings.  He should have value at some point this season, so if you have room on your bench, I would keep him stashed away.

According to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe, Daisuke Matsuzaka was placed on the DL today with “a right forearm strain.”  He was scheduled to start today, but Scott Atchison took his place with Dustin Richardson being recalled from Triple-A.  

Atchison is not likely the long-term answer to the rotation, so leave him at this point and see if there is any news in the next day or two.  

Pitching for the Red Sox, Matsuzaka does have value when healthy, so stash him away where possible.

What are your thoughts on these news pieces?  Who is available on your waiver wire to replace them?
