General manager Jon Daniels said Brad Hawpe is at full strength to play the outfield. He is recovering from Tommy John surgery and signed a Minor League deal with Double-A Frisco so he could work his way back into being able to play the outfield. He started in right field for the 12th time on Thursday for Frisco, but now his arm is to the point where he could play out there at the Major League level.
Mike Adams is available again in the Rangers' bullpen. He was down on Tuesday night with a bronchial infection. Said Adams: "I'm better. I'm not 100 percent, but I'm better than the last few days. I don't know exactly what it was, but it was pretty rough. I had trouble catching my breath and breathing."
Reliever Alexi Ogando entered Wednesday's game having not allowed a run in his past 15 1/3 innings. That's the third-longest streak by a reliever in the Major Leagues this season.
