Rangers general manager Jon Daniels ran down the list of players who were hurt toward the end of last season and their progress. Doug Mathis, who is at the conditioning camp, said he will be ready to throw soon. Mathis had his season cut short by right shoulder inflammation. Mathis said he'll be 100 percent by spring training. C.J. Wilson asked if he could throw instructional ball to prove his left arm was healthy. Daniels said that wouldn't be necessary and Wilson is feeling good since having bone spurs removed from his left elbow. Ian Kinsler have been cleared to resume working out since his sports hernia surgery. David Murphy and his sprained right knee are doing fine. The only thing that's slowed his rehab is the birth of his second daughter. Joaquin Benoit is rehabbing in Arlington and his sore right shoulder is responding. Brandon McCarthy is still feeling some pain in his right middle finger, but Daniels said that is normal.
