by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Rangers pitcher Martin Perez confirmed to The Dallas Morning News Thursday that he plans to have Tommy John surgery to repair a partially torn ligament in his elbow.

Perez will meet with the Rangers' front office staff Friday, to finalize the plans, and he has a few possible options to consider. He could undergo a platelet-rich plasma injection and try to rehab the injury, but surgery still might be needed down the road, so it seems inevitable he will undergo surgery sooner rather than later.

“I don’t want to miss this year; I want to get out there and compete,” Perez said. “But I can’t just think about this year. If I do the other option, I might not get back or the ligament might get hurt again. If I have the surgery, at this time next year, I can be back and doing what I was doing before – helping the team.

Texas realigns rotation heading into Houston series


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) The Rangers are delaying starting pitcher Colby Lewis' return to the rotation by a few days, so the team realigned its rotation plans for a weekend series vs. Houston.

Yu Darvish will start the series opener Friday, and he will be followed by Tanner Scheppers Saturday and Martin Perez Sunday. 

The delay in Lewis' return doesn't have to do with his surgically repaired hip. The Rangers are waiting to see if third baseman Adrian Beltre (quadriceps) will need a trip to the disabled list. If Beltre goes on the DL, then the team will have a roster spot for Lewis. If he doesn't, then the Rangers will have to make another move to get him on the roster.

Therefore, Lewis and Robbie Ross are expected to start the first two games of the Seattle series, which starts Monday. The alignment depends on when the Rangers decide to make a roster move.

He gave up three singles in the seventh inning before being replaced, and all three runs would eventually score.
