Rangers | May give Matt Harrison extra rest

The Texas Rangers are considering giving extra rest to SP Matt Harrison down the stretch. He leads the team with 27 starts and is on pace for 32 starts this year, two more than last year, which was a career high. Harrison is only 6 2/3 innings shy of his career high that was set in 2011. Manager Ron Washington said a six-man rotation has not been talked about. Harrison's arm slot changed during his outing Tuesday, Sept. 4, causing his pitches to flatten out. "From the start of the game until the fifth inning, my mechanics were different," Harrison said. "My arm angle changed. I was pulling way off the ball and falling (towards third base). My arm was just a little higher than side-arm. The life of my pitches just wasn't same of it because of that. I don't know exactly why it happened. I don't know if it was pitch count early on or what."
