• Right-hander Colby Lewis, who is coming back from flexor tendon surgery, threw in the bullpen on Friday and will be examined by Dr. Keith Meister on Saturday. If Meister gives his approval, Lewis could graduate to throwing batting practice next week.
• Meister is also expected to look at Joakim Soria (Tommy John surgery), Perez (broken arm) and McClellan (strained rib cage muscle) and assess their progress. Soria has been throwing in the bullpen, but he has not yet thrown batting practice. Perez and McClelland haven't resumed throwing programs.
• Michael Kirkman is scheduled to throw four innings on Friday night in a Minor League game against the Royals. Josh Lindblom is also pitching. He pitched on Thursday, so this will be his first back-to-back outing of the spring.
• The Rangers went into Friday's game having committed errors in two of their previous 15 games.
