ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ Texas Rangers pitcher Tim Crabtree has a partial tear in his right rotator cuff and will miss the rest of the season.

The team said Wednesday that Crabtree is scheduled to have surgery to repair the tear on Friday.

He was placed on the 15-day disabled list July 1, retroactive to June 26. He went to California for a second opinion on Tuesday.

The right-hander was 0-5 this season with a 6.56 ERA.

The Rangers recalled pitcher Dan Kolb from Oklahoma of the Pacific Coast League, where he had been on rehabilitation assignment. Kolb spent 60 days on the disabled list with a strained muscle behind his right elbow.
