Double-A BP next up on Uehara's agenda
NEW YORK -- Rangers reliever Koji Uehara, who has been on the disabled list since June 10 with a strained right lat muscle, is scheduled to throw batting practice on Wednesday for Double-A Frisco. That's the first of four steps the Rangers have planned for the right-hander in anticipation of activating him on Aug. 26.

The schedule calls for Uehara to throw two sessions of BP with Frisco, then make two appearances on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock. Those two appearances -- one inning each - are scheduled for Aug. 21 and Aug. 24.

"He should be ready to go after that if he has no setbacks," Rangers manager Ron Washington said.

Uehara had a 2.11 ERA in 20 games for the Rangers before going on the disabled list. The Rangers expected him to come off the disabled list after throwing a scoreless inning for Round Rock on July 14. But he re-aggravated his injury and had to start the healing process all over again.
