Found May 25, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Nick Tepesch is ready to return to the Texas Rangers’ starting rotation, and Alexi Ogando isn’t too far behind him, according to T.R.Sullivan of MLB.com. Tepesch was scratched from his previous start after he developed a blister. He’s set to return to the rotation after throwing 50 pitches during a bullpen session Thursday. There was no setback regarding the blister on his middle finger, and he’ll now start tomorrow against the Seattle Mariners. Ogando has been on the disabled list with tendinitis in his right triceps muscle since earlier this month. He played catch yesterday and told reporters that his arm is feeling much better. The 29-year-old will continue to throw this weekend, and he’s slated to log a bullpen session on Monday. If he comes out of that unfazed, the Rangers could elect to activate him for their three-game series against the Kansas City Royals next weekend or send him on a brief rehab stint in the minors. Tepesch – a 24-year-old rookie – has maintained an ERA of 3.98 with a 1.326 WHIP over eight starts this season. Prior to suffering his injury, Ogando had posted an ERA and WHIP of 3.08 and 1.248 over nine starts. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Andrus infuriates Beltre by touching his head

After the Rangers defeated the Seattle Mariners last night by the score of 5-2, the players were celebrating in the middle of the field and it appears that infielder Elvis Andrus decided to have some fun teammate Adrian Beltre. Watch as Elvis touches the head of Beltre with his glove and causes the Rangers third baseman to throw his glove at him: (Courtesy of CBS Sports)

Don't touch Adrian Beltre's head

Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre really hates people touching his head. Remember this from two weeks ago? Well, Beltre's head-related freakouts came into play again on Saturday night, with near disastrous results for Elvis Andrus. Good lord. Keep in mind, this is on the field during a conference on the mound. Robbie Ross then got Kyle Seager to pop...

Rangers showing they're just one big happy family

One of the keys to success in baseball is a good "clubhouse vibe." Players spend eight to nine months of the year with each other creating, in most cases, a family-like atmosphere. Perhaps one of the reasons the Rangers are having success this season is their clubhouse is, almost literally, a family, complete with a pair of "siblings" that take joy in messing...

Adrian Beltre’s Head Is The New Fetish

Someone please tell me what is the big deal about Adrian Beltre’s head?  It’s become a fetish to several of his teammates for years.  When he does something remarkable you tend to see players touching (we call it SUCTION) his head.  Does touching his head give good luck?  By the look of Beltre’s reaction, he does not tend to think so.  Well, that’s the wrong way...

Umps miss call in bizarre fashion

At this point, it may be more surprising when a week goes by without a terrible call by an MLB umpire. The latest gaffe might have been the worst of all. On Friday, the Texas Rangers were attempting to pull off a 3-6-3 double play in the second inning when pitcher Justin Grimm stepped in front of first baseman Mitch Moreland to intercept the ball. First base umpire Jeff Nelson thought...

Baker, Berkman go yard in 9-5 victory

I was getting sleepy around 7 p.m., so I wasn’t sure I’d be able to stay up for tonight’s West Coast game.  I asked, on Twitter, for the Rangers and my Rangers tweeps to make things interesting for me to stay awake.   Well, they did.  But there were a few “interesting” moments I could have done without. First was Justin Grimm’s misplay at first base in the 2nd inning...
