Worth noting

• Catcher Geovany Soto, who has been out since the end of Spring Training with a knee injury, caught Nick Tepesch's bullpen session Sunday and was scheduled to be one of the catchers in the bullpen when the Rangers warmed up relievers. "He's moving along," manager Ron Washington said.

• Despite being six games under .500, the Rangers lead the AL in shutouts with 14 including Saturday's 5-0 win. St. Louis leads the Majors with 15. The Rangers are the first AL team with at least 14 shutouts in the first 80 games since the 1968 Indians had 16 through 80 games. The Rangers' 14 shutouts are already sixth-most in club history.
