• The Rangers entered Sunday at 12-15 since first baseman Prince Fielder (neck) went on the DL on May 22, the day Murphy was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock.
• Catcher Geovany Soto (left knee surgery) reported no soreness after consecutive days of squatting and catching pitches. His return timetable remains after the All-Star break.
