The Rangers are waiting until Colby Lewis plays catch Friday to determine if he will need another trip to the disabled list with forearm tendinitis. The right-hander, who was activated Wednesday, pitched five innings in his first start since June 23 but left after feeling the forearm tighten.
He is scheduled to start against Tuesday.
"As far as I'm concerned, he's on scheduled to make it," manager Ron Washington said.
Right-hander Mark Lowe (intercostal strain) expects to get on a mound Saturday or Sunday for the first time since he landed on the DL. The plan was for him to play catch Friday. The Rangers are hopeful that Koji Uehara can be off a mound this weekend, but there are no definite plans.
First baseman Mitch Moreland had an extensive fielding workout Friday and will go through it again Saturday. He said his left hamstring is fine but might lack stamina. He is scheduled to run the bases Saturday and again Sunday. The impending birth of his daughter won't significantly hinder his rehab schedule.
Yorvit Torrealba, who welecomed a daughter Tuesday, has been removed from the paternity-leave list but was placed on the restricted list because his flight from the Miami area won't arrive before game time Friday. He will be activated Saturday, and Luis Martinez will head to Triple A. Washington is leaning toward starting Torrealba at catcher Saturday.
