Injuries: Dustin Nippert cleared for activity

By Richard Durrett

SEATTLE -- Rangers RHP Dustin Nippert, who was hit in the head by a line drive on July 19, has been cleared to begin activity.

Nippert is doing cardiovascular exercise and will start a throwing program Friday, according to Rangers officials.

There is no timetable for his return. But this is certainly a good sign of some progress from Nippert.
