    Texas Rangers starter Tommy Hunter will miss two to three more weeks after having a setback in his recovery from a right groin strain.

    Hunter received an MRI on Tuesday after experiencing discomfort in his groin on the final delivery of a 79-pitch rehab assignment for Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

    The 13-game winner for Texas in 2010 hasn't pitched in a major league game this season, but his return was proceeding on schedule.

    He was set for a second rehab start until the latest setback, saying he felt "a little tug" on the last pitch of Monday's outing.
