Rangers | Joakim Soria to pitch back-to-back days

Texas Rangers RP Joakim Soria (elbow) will make back-to-back appearances with Double-A Frisco Wednesday, July 3, and Thursday, July 4, and he could be activated from the disabled list after that. Soria hasn't given up a run in five outings in the Arizona League, with Frisco or Triple-A Round Rock, and he's given up only one hit while fanning seven in five innings.

Fantasy Tip: It's nice to see Soria nearing a return after Tommy John surgery, but he's unlikely to have any real lasting fantasy value this season. Joe Nathan is locked into the closer's role and the rest of the Texas bullpen has really excelled, most notably setup man Tanner Scheppers.
