Worth noting

• Former All-Star closer Neftali Feliz is still on the disabled list at Triple-A Round Rock, but general manager Jon Daniels said he is over the general fatigue in his right arm. Daniels said Feliz is getting close to begin throwing live batting practice. He has not pitched for Round Rock since April 16.

• Justin Germano will be the 21st pitcher used by the Rangers this season. Right now they are tied with the Yankees for most pitchers used in a game with 20.

Leonys Martin went into Thursday's game hitting .226 against left-handed pitchers. But he was still batting in the No. 6 spot for the first time this season. Donnie Murphy had been hitting sixth against left-handers but went on the disabled list Thursday with a strained neck.
