Joakim Soria targets late May, early June return

If there are no setbacks from recovering from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery, Joakim Soria is set to make his Texas Rangers debut in late May or early June.

Soria said his rehab has been "perfect" so far, as it's his second time going through it. He had Tommy John surgery when he was 19-years-old, as well.

"I feel good," Soria said. "I know what to expect. When I had the first one, I had most of my rehab in Mexico. Right now [in Arizona], we have all the facilities and trainers and all the doctors to help you."

Soria, 28, is long-tossing right now, throwing five minutes at 75-feet, five minutes at 105-feet and eight minutes at 120-feet. He hopes to throw off a mound in late February or early March.

The Rangers signed Soria, a two-time All-Star, in early December.
