Texas Rangers: injuries
Colby Lewis (forearm) hasn't had any trouble stretching out the tightness in his throwing arm. He threw 37 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday and will throw another bullpen at home in Bakersfield, Calif., on Tuesday. He is the closest pitcher to returning.
Alexi Ogando threw 51 pitches in the bullpen Saturday and will throw another session at home in the Dominican Republic at the Rangers Dominican Republic Academy on Monday. The plan is for Ogando to make a rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock on July 12.
Neftali Feliz threw 47 pitches in the bullpen and will throw another session with Ogando on Monday.
Koji Uehara will throw his next bullpen session Sunday.
Shortstop Elvis Andrus will probably miss a day or two of workouts after he had a Plantar's wart removed from his left heel in Dallas.
The Rangers aren't concerned about any "medium- or long-term concerns" in regard to it.
"He may just walking gingerly for the next few days," assistant general manager Thad Levine said.
As for some of the other players who arrived with injury concerns:
* RHP Mike Adams (hernia surgery) had a light day of workouts. He said he's had fatigue but nothing unusual and feels good. It's unclear if he'll throw to hitters Saturday as he may take an extra day to rest.
* Catcher Mike Napoli (ankle) said he felt good the day after giving his ankle a test by squatting down and catching bullpens. Napoli said at some point in the next few days he hopes to start some blocking drills and see how it responds.
"But I feel good," Napoli said. "I'm not worried at all. And I taped it up the last few days and that feels good."
* First baseman Mitch Moreland (wrist) is still limited to no more than 75 swings but said he needed only 60 to get his work in Thursday.
"I'm excited because I don't feel pain and I'm not far behind at all," Moreland said.
Assistant GM Thad Levine said Andrus went to the back fields to work out and said he could play, but manager Ron Washington didn't want to take any chances. He's listed as day-to-day. Andrus played in Scottsdale on Monday night.
Leury Garcia will take Andrus' place.
Other injury news:
* RHP Neftali Feliz (shin) is still on target to pitch Wednesday in Surprise in a Cactus League game as planned. He hasn't pitched since he was hit on the left shin by a line drive throwing live batting practice on Sunday.
* 3B Adrian Beltre (Grade 1 calf strain) took live batting practice and ran the bases on Tuesday as he continues to rehab the calf muscle. Beltre said his biggest issue right now is quick reactions. He did some jogging in cleats on Monday as well.
* RHP Tanner Scheppers will receive a root nerve injection on Wednesday to help alleviate the pain in the right side of his lower back. Scheppers has been taking anti-inflammatory medicine and said he's feeling better. By taking the injection, it will be another few days before he can work his way back onto a throwing schedule.
