The Rangers haven’t fared well in their trip to the South Side of Chicago thus far, dropping the first game of the series 19-2 to the White Sox, and losing in extra innings in game two Wednesday night. But for those who like to look at the bright side of things, four Rangers’ pitchers could be seen throwing prior to Wednesday’s game and on Thursday morning, a sign that they’re coming along fine in rehabbing their various ailments.
Koji Uehara threw for the first time since landing on the disabled list with a strained lat on Wednesday.
Neftali Feliz, who’s dealing with a strained elbow, and Alexi Ogando, who has a strained groin, each threw bullpen sessions this morning. Feliz is eligible to return from the 60-day disabled list on July 18; Ogando could return earlier, but due to the nature of groin injuries, Texas is treading with caution.
"The groin can hide," Manager Ron Washington told the team’s official website. "You can throw and then you can fatigue, and there it is again."
Colby Lewis, out with a strained right forearm also threw on Thursday, but he was limited to short work, from in front of the mound. Lewis is eligible to return from the DL on Monday.
