Albers out, Zeid up

Matt Albers has been placed on paternity leave as he and his wife are expecting their first child. Josh Zeid has been called up from OKC to replace Albers in the bullpen, and will be active for Tuesday's series opener with the Blue Jays.

Albers is permitted under Paternity Leave rules to be away from the team for 24-72 hours, so expect him in Arlington for the series with the Rangers - and congratulations to Albers and his wife.
