Worth noting

• Frisco pitcher Randy Henry has been placed on the disabled list with tightness in his right forearm. He is 1-0 with a 0.74 ERA in eight relief appearances for the Frisco and part of a bullpen that has been outstanding.

• Nelson Cruz had played in 137 consecutive games before sitting out Sunday's game against the Astros.

• Adrian Beltre is the only Rangers player to have started all 37 games. Beltre has started 36 games at third base and one at designated hitter. Manager Ron Washington said Beltre is getting due for a day off but it won't be against the Athletics or the Tigers this week.
