The 23-year-old has posted a promising 1.27 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 49/26 K/BB ratio across 35 1/3 innings this season between Double-A and Triple-A. He should fare pretty well in a middle relief role for the Rangers.

Wilmer Font (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Monday.

It will be his first since he was diagnosed with mild shoulder tendinitis last week. The shoulder ailment doesn't seem to be a big deal, but it doesn't help Font in his bid to win an Opening Day bullpen spot.

Rangers prospect right-hander Wilmer Font was scratched from Tuesday's intrasquad game due to mild shoulder tendinitis.

If healthy, the hard-throwing right-hander figures to be an option in the Rangers' bullpen at some point in 2013.

Baseball America ranked him as the organization's No. 14 prospect over the winter, so he still has a very bright future if he can bounce back.
