SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus is closer to returning to the lineup after taking a few days off from games to deal with flexor tendinitis.

Andrus is throwing again and participated in most of the team drills Monday. He could get in a game in the next day or two.

Other injuries:

* C Geovany Soto (foot surgery) is out of his boot and is hitting soft toss and off a tee as he continues to ramp up for what he hopes is a mid-March return.

* RHP Nate Adcock, a nonroster invitee to spring training, felt some numbness in the fingers on his throwing hand and will not pitch until team physician Dr. Keith Meister can take a look at him. That may not be until this weekend.

* RHP Miles Mikolas (elbow soreness) and RHP Shawn Tolleson (back) are throwing from 90 feet.
