Worth noting

• Rookie Martin Perez is still slated to start Monday's game at Oakland after allowing five runs and failing to get out of the first inning in Wednesday's 9-3 loss to Oakland. Washington said Scott Feldman, who made an emergency start for Yu Darvish on Tuesday, was not a candidate for Monday's start.

• Roy Oswalt, who has pitched twice in the last three days -- with 3 1/3 scoreless innings -- doesn't have his pitch count up high enough to start a game, Washington said. Oswalt threw a combined 53 pitches in the two appearances against Oakland.

• The Rangers had gone hitless with runners in scoring position in six of their last 10 games entering Thursday.
