Hurley to start Thursday

Top pitching prospect Eric Hurley flew with the Rangers to Kansas City and will be their starter Thursday, the team announced Monday. The Rangers will make a roster move later in the week to make room for Hurley, who has struggled at times this season at Triple-A Oklahoma.

The right-hander is 2-5 with a 5.30 ERA in 13 starts, and he has allowed 15 home runs in 74 2/3 innings. But he allowed only two runs on seven hit in 6 2/3 innings Saturday at New Orleans. He struck out seven but got a no-decision.

Hurley will fill the rotation void created when last week, when the Rangers cut ties with right-hander Sidney Ponson. Left-hander Kason Gabbard and righty Luis Mendoza were also candidates to take Ponson's spot.
