Tue, 30 Apr 2013 19:43:23 -0700
Texas Rangers RP Kyle McClellan (ribcage) is throwing off the mound in the bullpen, as he continues to rehab in extended spring training due to a strained rib cage muscle.

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.

Texas Rangers RP Kyle McClellan (lat) is two weeks into a projected three to four week period of inactivity with a strained right lat muscle. He'll start long tossing and doing flat-ground work when he's cleared. SP Martin Perez (arm) has been cleared to start a throwing program when he's pain-free. He's not wearing a protective brace on his arm and hopes to start throwing next week. RP Joakim Soria (elbow) should start throwing live batting practice the week of April 8. SP Colby Lewis (elbow) is on the same time frame as Soria barring any setbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Lewis is the best fantasy option of the bunch if you can stash him on the DL for the first month of the season in deep enough mixed leagues.

Texas Rangers RP Kyle McClellan (rib cage) will remain with the team, even though he'll miss six to eight weeks with a strained rib cage muscle. He could trigger his out clause in his contract but said he wants to remain with the club and rehab.
Fantasy Tip: When healthy, McClellan could be a swing man for the back end of the rotation, but he's more likely to be used as a long relief option. Don't consider him with a fantasy baseball selection.
