Rangers | Martin Perez to throw BP

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez (arm) is expected to throw live batting practice in the next seven to 10 days. RP Kyle McClellan (lat) should be back on a mound by May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Now that Matt Harrison (back) is out until after the All-Star break, Perez has a realistic shot at regaining a spot in the starting rotation when he's ready. Nick Tepesch and Justin Grimm are holding down the final two spots currently, but Perez is arguably better and has a higher ceiling than both of those hurlers. Keep Perez on your radar, especially in AL-only formats.
