Uehara may be ready by Tuesday
SEATTLE -- The Rangers expect to activate pitchers Colby Lewis and Alexi Ogando off the disabled list during their two-game set with Oakland on Tuesday and Wednesday. Manager Ron Washington said Koji Uehara could also be activated during that series.

Uehara, who has been on the DL with a strained muscle in his right rib cage, threw 28 pitches of live batting practice on Thursday and is scheduled to throw an inning on a medical-rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday. If all goes well, Washington suggested that Uehara could rejoin the Rangers in Oakland.

"He was throwing the ball well," Washington said. "In live BP, they couldn't do anything with him. He was throwing free and easy."

Ogando pitched one inning on Thursday and is scheduled to pitch two on Saturday. If he does so without any problems, the Rangers expect to activate him on Tuesday.

Lewis, who hasn't pitched since June 23 because of inflammation in right forearm, is scheduled to start on Wednesday against Oakland. He threw a bullpen session on Tuesday in Bakersfield, Calif., and another one on Friday.

"I'll throw one more light one and then I'll be ready to go," Lewis said.
