Harrison, sidelined with toe issue, may play this week


GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Pitcher Matt Harrison, who was scratched from his last start because of toe inflammation on his left foot, threw a full bullpen on Sunday without any problems. The Rangers have decided not to send him back to Dallas for further examination.

Harrison, who was scratched from Saturday's start against the Padres, could get into a game later this week. But the Rangers are still listing Yu Darvish as the starter against the Giants on Monday and Alexi Ogando against the Brewers on Tuesday. The Rangers are off on Wednesday before playing the Athletics on Thursday and the Giants on Friday.

Kyle McClellan is also getting healthy again. He came out of Saturday's live batting practice session without any problems and will likely be one of the pitchers used against the Brewers on Tuesday. McClellan has not yet pitched in a Cactus League game because of muscle soreness in the back of his right shoulder.

Wilmer Font (shoulder inflammation) also threw live batting practice on Sunday and could be ready for a game.
