• Lefty Matt Harrison (back surgery) will make another rehab start for Double-A Frisco on Sunday. He threw 62 pitches Tuesday in 4 2/3 innings in his second rehab start of the season. "He'll be built up by the end of the month," GM Jon Daniels said. "I think by April 23 we said he theoretically could be ready to go 100 pitches, but that's not a deadline to activate him. We want to make sure he's ready to go. He's definitely taking strides each time out, but I don't think he's ready yet. I think he's going to benefit from a few more starts."

• Colby Lewis's return will be Monday or Tuesday against Seattle. The club has not announced a decision on which day yet, as the status of Adrian Beltre could affect which day Lewis pitches due to the need for a roster move to add Lewis.
