• Pitcher Alexi Ogando, who is on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, threw long toss in the outfield on Saturday. There is no word yet on when he'll throw off a mound.
• Colby Lewis, still on a recovery program from last year's surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon, said he is hoping to resume throwing off a mound on Monday. He has been limited to playing catch the past week, while waiting for the soreness in the back of his right elbow to subside.
• Joakim Soria, recovering from both Tommy John elbow reconstruction and a strained right shoulder, had no problems after a 30-plus pitch batting practice session on Friday. He has another one on Monday and could be close to being sent on medical rehabilitation assignment in the Minor Leagues.
• The Rangers are scheduled to face the Cardinals' top three starting pitchers next weekend in St. Louis. Lance Lynn is scheduled to pitch on Friday, with Shelby Miller on Saturday and Adam Wainwright on Sunday.
