Neftali Feliz (elbow) is long-tossing at 120 feet.
Feliz's rehab from Tommy John surgery is going fine, although it's not yet been announced when he'll be ready to throw off a mound. We expect him to return to a major league mound late in the summer.
Elvis Andrus went 5-for-5 with two RBI to help the Rangers beat the Tigers 7-2 on Saturday night.
Andrus got the Rangers on the board first when he singled and then later scored on a passed ball in the bottom of the opening inning. He would later add a triple, a double and two more singles, also tallying two steals. The talented shortstop is hitting .282/.328/.350 with 12 stolen bases in 42 games played this season.
Ian Kinsler (ribs) is out of the Rangers' starting lineup again on Saturday evening.
Kinsler was hit in the ribs by a throw Tuesday while stealing second base and aggravated his contusion Thursday during an at-bat. He is considered day-to-day.
Geovany Soto homered for the second consecutive game, but that was the entirety of the Rangers offensive attack in Friday's loss to the Tigers.
Soto finished the evening 1-for-3. He's still hitting a horrifying .185/.267/.333 through his first 54 at-bats on the season, but has at least picked up the production some in recent days while being counted on to fill in for the injured A.J. Pierzynski. He remains a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
Nick Tepesch pitched decently in a losing effort against the Tigers on Friday, allowing two runs on six hits over his five innings.
Tepesch also walked three and struck out one in the contest. He shut down the vaunted Tigers offense through the first four innings, but they broke through in the fifth courtesy of an RBI double from Miguel Cabrera and a sacrifice fly from Alex Avila. Tepesch has done a decent job thus far for the Rangers, compiling a 3-4 record, 3.98 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 31/13 K/BB ratio over 43 innings. He'll get the Athletics next at home on Wednesday.
Alexi Ogando (biceps) underwent an MRI which revealed no structural damage.
Ogando was placed on the disabled list on Thursday with biceps tendinitis after he felt some pain during Wednesday's start against the Athletics. It's an encouraging sign that no more serious damage was found, and his stay on the DL should be a short one. Josh Lindblom is expected to hold his place in the rotation while he's sidelined.
Ian Kinsler was scratched from Friday's lineup due to bruised ribs.
Kinsler was hit in his ribs with a throw Tuesday while stealing a base and aggravated it on Thursday while getting out of the way of a pitch. Consider him day-to-day for now. Leury Garcia will fill in at second base while Elvis Andrus bats leadoff.
