There is no more room on the Texas Rangers starting rotation. That has made at least one player very unhappy.

Texas Rangers pitcher Scott Feldman expressed his frustations to ESPNDallas.com on being relegated to bullpen duty because the Rangers called up veteran pitcher Roy Oswalt.

“It’s just tough to keep going back and forth,” Feldman said. “That’s the main thing. Moving back and forth, it’s how you hurt your arm.  "It’s how you get hurt. I’m not happy.”

The Rangers have had a six-man bullpen in the past and will meet that number again by moving Feldman to the 'pen. Oswalt is scheduled to start on Friday.

“There’s a need in the bullpen,” manager Ron Washington said because starters Derek Holland and Neftali Feliz are on the disabled list.
