Texas Rangers catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia has been shut down again after experiencing more numbness in his right arm.

If rest doesn't help this time, Saltalamacchia likely will need season-ending surgery. He said it's "probably a 50-50 chance" he will need surgery.

Saltalamacchia, on the disabled list since Aug. 15 because of recurring numbness, had the same problem when catching during a minor league rehab assignment Sunday. He caught seven innings but says his fingers were so numb he couldn't feel the ball.

Rangers manager Ron Washington said Kevin Richardson will be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City when rosters expand Tuesday to be the third catcher behind Ivan Rodriguez and Taylor Teagarden.
