• Left-hander Matt Harrison threw 35 pitches from a half-mound on Monday, another step in his recovery from a back injury that has sidelined him for most of the Rangers' spring workouts. He threw all his pitches and felt fine, meaning the next step is playing catch on Tuesday before his first full bullpen session on Wednesday.
"It's just going to take some time to get back off the mound and get used to it," Harrison said. "As long as I feel good, [the injury] is kind of behind me now. I'm not worried about my back bothering me. I feel confident in my stuff, I feel confident in myself, I'm just ready to keep going."
• Washington said Mitch Moreland is "staying on the ball better" this spring. The left-handed-hitting Moreland has made a concerted effort to work to all fields.
