• Lefty Joseph Ortiz, who has been on the 60-day disabled list all season with a fractured left foot, was sent to the Arizona Rangers on a rehab assignment. Ortiz tossed a scoreless inning Friday in his first appearance of the season.
• First baseman/outfielder Jim Adduci, on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock, went 2-for-5 with an RBI for the Express on Saturday. Washington said the "possibility is strong" that Adduci -- who hasn't played with the Rangers since April 17 due to a fractured left pinkie finger, which he re-broke in June -- could rejoin Texas on Monday in New York against the Yankees.
