SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Craig Gentry doesn't know when to stop. Now he's running through bullpen doors trying to catch fly balls.That may not be the wisest move for the Rangers outfielder, considering he broke his right wrist crashing into an outfield wall at Triple-A Oklahoma City last year. On Thursday afternoon, he went through the bullpen door. Gentry was playing left field for the Rangers against the White Sox when Mark Teahen came to bat in the sixth inning. Teahen, facing David Bush, launched a long fly ball to left that Gentry tracked to the warning track before crashing into the wire-mesh door that leads into the visiting bullpen at Surprise Stadium. Only the door wasn't secure. Instead it gave way and popped open. Gentry went through it and went sprawling into the White Sox bullpen. Teahen, who was credited with a home run, jogged around the bases while Gentry tried to collect himself. "It scared me for a second," center fielder Julio Borbon said. "He was playing hard and trying to catch the ball," right fielder Nelson Cruz said.
