MLB Injury News:
The Texas Rangers recently placed rookie hurler Nick Tepesch on the disabled list. The right-hander joined fellow starters Matt Harrison, Alexi Ogando and Colby Lewis on the DL, and the veteran trio is hoping to return to the Rangers at some point after the All-Star break, according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com.
Harrison started the season with the Rangers, but after making only two appearances he's been sidelined with a herniated disc in his back. He's since undergone a pair of surgeries to repair the issue, and he recently began throwing long toss and playing catch off the mound. Harrison will continue this routine through the week, but he's hoping to begin throwing in earnest off the mound following the All-Star break, according to Sullivan.
"We're still looking at the end of August if all goes
well," said Harrison, who had his second surgery on May 2. "Maybe six
or seven bullpen sessions and a couple of live batting practices and hopefully
I can get in a game [on a rehab assignment] by the beginning of August. But
everything has to go right for that to happen."
Lewis has yet to pitch for the Rangers this season after his 2012 campaign was ended by flexor tendon surgery in his throwing elbow. He's faced a pair of setbacks during his rehab stint in the minors, but he's once again prepping for an assignment. Lewis is slated to throw live batting practice twice this week before being evaluated to see what the next step in his recovery process will be.
Ogando is the closest of the trio to rejoining the Rangers. The right-hander has been effective when healthy this season, posting an ERA and WHIP of 2.93 and 1.229 over 10 starts. He's scheduled to make his second rehab start on Thursday, and if all continues to go well he could be activated from the DL shortly after the All-Star break.

I would prefer to forget that four-game set with Baltimore a few years ago right before the All-Star break, but my baseball heart never lets me. I kind of feared history would repeat itself as the Rangers headed east for a series with the Orioles with the mid-summer classic just a week away. Fortunately, Derek Holland and the gang made sure this one wouldn’t be four losses...
