Well, at least now we know why Kenny Rogers has been struggling over his last three starts. The elbow did it.
Rogers was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to inflammation in his left elbow. Jordan Tata will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to take his turn in the rotation tomorrow night in Oakland. (via Jason Beck)
In 11 starts with the Mud Hens, Tata notched a 3-3 record and 3.29 ERA, with 30 strikeouts in 63 innings. He missed the first two months of the season because of a sore shoulder.
