Indians have hit parade in rout over Rangers (1:01)

Jean-Jacques Taylor ESPN Staff Writer 

The Texas Rangers have placed relief pitcher Jeremy Jeffress on the Major League Baseball restricted list for Friday's game against the Cleveland Indians. Jeffress, who has a 4.00 ERA in nine appearances after being acquired at the trade deadline, was arrested this morning and charged with driving while intoxicated. That incident has prevented Jeffress from attending Friday night's game and fulfilling his contract. "The Rangers are certainly disappointed in Jeremy's actions of early this morning," said President of Baseball Operations Jon Daniels. "We have been in touch with Jeremy's representatives and Major League Baseball, and are continuing to work through this situation and gather more information."
