Injuries: Jurickson Profar is throwing again
Rangers manager Ron Washington is not concerned about whether Profar will be ready for the start of the season.
"He's getting his work in at second base and hitting," Washington said. "He'll be fine as long as he doesn't have a setback."
* RHP Shawn Tolleson (shoulder) and RHP Miles Mikolas (elbow) are not throwing and are listed as day-to-day. But if they don't show improvement by the weekend, they'll see Dr. Keith Meister, the club's physician.
* LHP Rafael Perez (hamstring strain) will try to play catch Wednesday.
* RF Alex Rios (toe) came out of working out Tuesday feeling fine. He will continue to do all activities but will not play in Thursday's first Cactus League game.
* RHP Tanner Scheppers (back stiffness) is scheduled for a live batting practice session Thursday.
* RHP Nick Tepesch (back stiffness) is scheduled for a live batting practice session Friday.
