• Manager Ron Washington, whose New Orleans home was damaged by Hurricane Katrina, reported no major problems after Hurricane Issac went through earlier this week.

Said Washington: "Everything is good. No wind damage. No water damage. The icebox may smell up the house, though, because there has been no electricity for three days."

• The Rangers are expected to announce their September callups after Friday's game. Double-A Frisco infielder Jurickson Profar is expected to be promoted at some point, but the Rangers may wait until after the Texas League playoffs are over.

• Triple-A reliever Tanner Scheppers will have to wait until Tuesday for a callup. He was optioned to Round Rock last Sunday, and players have to wait 10 days before they can be recalled unless it's due to injury. Scheppers is eligible to come back because Round Rock's season is over.

• The Arizona Rookie League Rangers defeated the Dodgers, 7-3, on Thursday to advance to the league championship game. They play the Athletics on Friday.
