Moreland to begin rehab assignment

ARLINGTON -- Mitch Moreland was cleared to begin his rehab assignment at Double-A Frisco on Monday. The assignment is expected to last three games.

Moreland ran the bases before Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, but Rangers manager Ron Washington said he had a light day. He has been on the 15-day disabled list since June 6 with a right hamstring strain.

The Rangers could possibly get Jeff Baker back this week. He received a cortisone shot Saturday to help deal with the swelling in his right thumb. Washington said Baker should be ready Friday or possibly even during a four-game series against the Athletics that begins Monday. Baker said he was getting better but would not put a timetable on his return.

"I'm just going day by day and see how it goes, but Friday would be nice," Baker said.
