Rangers team physician Dr. Keith Meister evaluated right-handed pitcher Neil Ramirez on Monday and the exam revealed no structural or tissue issues in the pitcher's right shoulder.

Ramirez will take a week to 10 days off from pitching and focus on stretching and strengthening his shoulder. He'll then ease back into his routine.

Ramirez, 22, was removed in the second inning of Triple-A Round Rock's game on Friday because of stiffness in his shoulder. But the tests showed nothing serious. Ramirez spent some time on the disabled list earlier this season with shoulder fatigue.

Ramirez is 4-3 with a 3.68 ERA in 17 starts for Round Rock with 85 strikeouts and 35 walks. He skipped Double-A this season as the club felt he needed a challenge.
