Worth noting

• With Perez out, Washington said the Rangers are still currently "covered" internally in their search for a No. 5 starter. He mentioned the familiar names for the competition: right-handers Randy Wells, Kyle McClellan, Justin Grimm and Nick Tepesch and left-hander Robbie Ross.

• Washington is giving the team a full day off on Tuesday, with no one scheduled to report to the club's training complex. His plans? "First thing, I'm going to get a haircut, and then I'll figure it out from there."

• Neftali Feliz, coming off Tommy John surgery last Aug. 1, threw from 75 feet for the first time on Monday.
