Worth noting

• Pitcher Josh Lindblom had to return home for a funeral for a family member and missed throwing live batting practice on Saturday. He is expected back in a day or two.

• Manager Ron Washington reminded the Rangers during his pre-workout meeting that he wants his players running the bases aggressively again. Said Washington: "The handcuffs are off and the ankle chains are off. Let's see what you can do."

• Washington said both right-hander Tanner Scheppers and left-hander Michael Kirkman are throwing the ball well early in camp.
