ARLINGTON, Texas For a team that's as beat up as the Texas Rangers are, Monday was a nice change of events.
The Rangers actually got some good news on the injury front.
Ian Kinsler was in the field working with Texas manager Ron Washington for the first time since he went on the disabled list May 19. Mitch Moreland, who is out with a right strained hamstring, feels like his injury isn't severe and he could be back in two weeks.
Pitcher Colby Lewis said his right arm feels better now than it has at any time since he left Arizona. And Matt Harrison, who has had two back surgeries, got a good report from his doctor. He's ramping up his exercise program and could begin playing catch next week.
Kinsler, who went on the DL with a right intercostal strain but later was revealed to have a stress reaction, is also hitting in the batting cages but hasn't faced any pitchers.
His next test will see how he feels after working out with Washington for 11 minutes.
