SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Texas Rangers starter Colby Lewis is scheduled to throw from 135 feet Saturday after making three sessions from 120 feet. It's another step closer to throwing off a mound.

PODCAST
Richard Durrett joins Galloway & Company to discuss why Jurickson Profar will start in the minors and Nelson Cruz reporting to Rangers spring training.

Listen Listen
Lewis said he'll throw from 135 feet for three days (Saturday, Monday, Wednesday) and then go up to 150 feet for three sessions before getting on a mound. It means that if he has no setbacks, he'd be ready to make his first throws off a mound around March 1.

Other injury news:

* Joakim Soria had a 20-pitch bullpen Friday with no issues. He's scheduled to throw Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

* Roman Mendez long-tossed from 120 feet Friday.

* Justin Miller will increase his bullpen session to 20 pitches Saturday.
