The Rangers are considering activating Ross Detwiler (shoulder) from the disabled list to start on Saturday against the Red Sox.
Out with left shoulder inflammation, Detwiler threw an extended bullpen session on Tuesday that went well. The Rangers would ideally like to give him at least one rehab start, but Phil Klein was awful in his last start so the club is considering bringing Detwiler back early. "We continue to assess where we’re at," manager Jeff Banister said.
Cory Luebke (elbow) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Tuesday.
He recently began throwing live batting practice and is ready to take the next step. Working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery, Luebke is hoping to be an option for the Padres in the second half.
Casey Kelly (elbow) will make his first start of the season for Double-A San Antonio on Thursday.
It will be just his fifth start since he had Tommy John surgery in 2013, as Kelly has battled elbow issues during his recovery. He's posted a 3.79 ERA over 14 relief appearances in the minors this season as the Padres attempt to ease him back into things. Injuries have posed a major roadblock for the former top prospect, but he's still just 25.
Wil Myers was told he's experienced "marked improvement" with his left wrist when he visited specialist Dr. Lorenzo Pacelli on Tuesday.
It's good to hear, although Myers has yet to resume swinging a bat and there won't be any sort of timetable for his return until that happens. The outfielder hasn't played in two weeks because of tendinitis in his left wrist.
Ryan Hanigan (hand) will resume throwing next week.
Hanigan fractured his right hand on May 1 and was moved to the 60-day disabled list a couple days after that. He's recovered well, though, and expects to be activated when first eligible in early July.
Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has been hitting for a few days.
Hitting hasn't been an issue, but Puig is still feeling some tightness in his left hamstring while running. He'll report to extended spring training to continue his rehab when the Dodgers begin their road trip this weekend. Obviously, fantasy owners can't get excited about getting him back until the tightness completely goes away.
Brett Anderson's back felt fine on Tuesday.
Anderson dealt with stiffness in his back during Monday's start. He remained in the game, though, and will be ready to go this weekend against the Cardinals.
Sonny Gray (ankle) threw a bullpen session Tuesday with no issues.
Gray had to exit Sunday's game with an ankle injury, but he's ready to roll for Friday's matchup against the Yankees. The right-hander boasts a 1.77 ERA over his first 10 starts this season.
